If Herb Caen, I can too

Back when newspapers were worth reading…and I’m outing myself as a real old-timer by admitting I can remember that far back…the San Francisco Chronicle featured a columnist named Herb Caen…who put three dots between everything he wrote…and just about everything else he wrote… Herb earned his keep by emitting a steady stream of witty little blurt-outs and brain-farts. Few rivaled the epigrams of LaRochefoucauld.  But at least Herb kept them coming, day after day, week after week, year after year. The guy was a maestro of three-dot journalism…a nattering nabob…

Jonathan Kay and I agree: “Conspiracy theories” are getting out of hand!

Jonathan Kay is the author of Among the Truthers, an anti-9/11-truth rant that devotes more vitriolic attention to me than to any other 9/11 truth movement figure, and libels me outrageously in the process. So you wouldn’t think that Jonathan and I would ever see eye-to-eye. But it turns out that we agree on a very important point: The “Islamic terror threat” has been grossly exaggerated. Amazingly enough, we  also agree that “conspiracy theories” are getting out of hand! Here is Jonathan Kay’s response to my recent open letter trying…

In irreligious Europe, as in the great coastal metropolitan centers of the USA, there is little legal or social pressure to obey religious dictates; whereas in the Islamic world, and parts of the American heartland, where deeply religious majorities exist, religious opinion demands obeisance on important matters….
