Troofers Take A Hit

Among the more ridiculous -- and inevitable -- events of the past several years has been the prevalence of "truthers." These are 9/11 conspiracy nuts, people who think that the U.S. government was responsible for 9/11.

The History Channel has prepared a two-hour special that gives the truthers plenty of rope, and then hangs them with it. It also includes a section describing how rumors and conspiracy theories grow over time, and the accelerating effect that the Internet has on such things. I'm pleased, like many others, to see some common sense applied to runaway lunacy.
