Today, of course, is the sixth anniversary of the worst terrorist attack to ever occur on American soil. As most of you know, this event has inspired a new, very vocal generation of conspiracy theorists who have accused the American government of demolishing the World Trade Center and murdering thousands of people. The leaps of logic it takes to believe such a thing are too much to even broach here, but since this is a skeptical web site and this is such an important anniversary, I’ll just link to a great blog called Screw Loose Change. Looks like Pat, one of the blog authors, will be on AM radio tonight: info here. Check it out if you can! Otherwise, just take a moment to be grateful for the team of skeptics out there fighting against a vast tide of misinformed conspiracy believers.
