Pat, Thanks for this post. I just spent some time explaining to 11-year-old Ryan what a conspiracy theory was, and my own reasons why they tend to fall apart. I'll probably share some of this with him, if he's still interested. (He was a captive audience in the car in traffic on the way to school when we talked about it Friday).
