People these days are obsessed with conspiracy theories. Whenever something cruel or unusual happens, somebody always seems to concoct one cockamamie theory or another about what really happened and who’s probably to blame.
The Kennedy assassination when I was a kid was my first experience with the practise and 50 years later various versions of the truth behind that one are still being spun.
In the latest iteration, author Douglas Brode’s “Patsy”, it seems Lee Harvey Oswald was on the sixth floor of the Texas Book Depository and firing away as the official version states. Only he was actually trying to kill the men on the Grassy Knoll in order to save the President’s life.
How deep does the rabbit hole go anyway?
In popular culture, the conspiracy theory has become such a familiar meme that those with nefarious intent can use it to their own personal advantage.
Which brings us to another American President, Teddy Roosevelt, and a dark conspiracy involving Major League baseball, people in strange disguises and odd goings on at public gatherings.
This is not for either the faint of heart or those suffering from an under-developed sense of humor…
Enjoy Your Sunday.
