Politics: Someone needs a Reynold's Wrap yarmulke...

A "noted theologian" gives us the straight skinny on the collapse of the WTC.


Noted theologians are known for their architectural and structural engineering expertise in much the same way that noted actress Meryl Streep is an authority on biochemistry.

Perhaps by putting forward his "Intelligent Falling" theory, he can explain how the miles of detcord and kilos of explosives were somehow missed by all those people going about their business in the WTC prior to the events of 9/11. Maybe all of the survivors are in on the plot? Maybe the government terrorists were made invisible by angels?

Structural analyses and fireproofing problems are so prosaic compared to cloak & dagger conspiracy theories, but William of Occam finds them a touch more plausible.

"Moonbats to the left of me, moonbats to the right,
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you..."

Another theologian from the 60s who protested against "the establishment" then and desperately seeking to be established now?

Our church is full of them. They are wailing and gnashing their teeth because they are reaching retirement age. Social Security isn't enough. The government isn't doing enough to prop up failing pension funds.

They are beginning to emerge from the purple haze. They're propping up the bank balances through lectures and book sales. They don't pay much in taxes because they're "religious organizations".

Theologians with guitars - to that I say the only purpose for a guitar in Church is to be used as kindling for the church-fireplace.
