I realized today that we have a clear theme for this week's posts.
"There is No Such Thing as a Conspiracy Week!"
For years one of my favorite lines has been; "everything really IS a conspiracy!" Natually I get rolled eyes, snickers and outright laughter...and that's from my friends.

Mr. GARDNER. "Yes, that is right."
Senator Eastland: "Mr Smith, you had been warning the State Department that Castro was a Marxist?'
Mr. Smith: "Yes, sir....
Senator Eastland: "Would you say that the American Government then, including all of its agencies, was largely responsible for bringing Castro to power?"
