It is with surprise and disappointment that I see the Herald giving column space to provide a platform for absurd 9/11 conspiracy “theories” (“The conspiracy behind Sept. 11,” [age A7, June 14 Herald).
These are zombie ideas that were killed years ago but refuse to die. Does the Herald endorse the claim that our own government conspired to carry out those heinous attacks? I would hope it does not, but publishing such a letter has to make its readers wonder. Would the Herald publish a letter denying the Holocaust or that we landed on the Moon?
We have enough real-world problems to debate and solve, not the least of which are unemployment, growing inequality, global warming, inadequate education funding, crumbling infrastructure and a host of others. Let’s focus on those and not the conspiratorial and nonsensical rants of an extreme minority.
