We’re hard-wired to try to explain what we can’t accept by shouting CONSPIRACY!
And that is why Covid had to have been engineered by a Chinese lab.
And why the US Election was stolen by underground alien child snatchers.
They and the rest of the SH1T we’re seeing now will draw the Conspiracy Tourist for years to come.
Of course our curiosity for conspiracies is constantly fed by books and movies, the most recent of which is a new one on me…
Grab a Booth
John Wilkes Booth, Washington and Virginia: And it is timely to talk of Booth.
And we all saw the Confederate flag-wielding protestor breaking into the US Capitol Rotunda last week.
Channel surfing, I fell upon a PBS programme.
Somebody was positing whether it was indeed Booth who was shot dead in his hideout in Virginia.
Let your imagination run wild aa you walk through history itself.
The classy knoll
The Dallas Book Depository: And the segue here is the highest pub in Ireland, Johnnie Fox’s in the Dublin Mountains.
Where amongst all the Irish memorabilia there is a poster comparing the circumstances of Lincoln’s death and Son of Ireland John F Kennedy.
Both 43, both succeeded by a Johnson, Booth killing Lincoln in a theater, Oswald arrested in a cinema.
If it was in fact Oswald… all of which you can learn and more at the Sixth Floor Museum at the Dealey Plaza in Dallas.
The Lorraine Motel
King and Memphis: And the most recognisable bedroom balcony in history which with its bedroom is now the Civil Rights Museum in Memphis.
Where you can witness where Dr Martin Luther King was shot down.
And you’ll learn, as I did the strange circumstances behind ‘assassin’ James Earl Ray’s flight.
And also how fingers are pointed at the FBI and the Mafia.
Ray was arrested weeks later in Heathrow Airport in London after suspicions were aroused because he was in possession of two passports.
All of which makes me edgy every time I visit the Deep South
And go through customs as I carry around my old passport with my ten-year American visa.
Goodbye Norma Jean
Marilyn and LA: And Marilyn Monroe fans will all pay a pilgrimage to her last resting place.
The Westwood Village Memorial Park and Mortuary is a retreat of solace in La La Land.
Where Marilyn rests in peace for eternity.
Apart that is from the unwanted attention of her nemesis Hugh Heffner who bought his drawer next to her.
In life Marilyn too was hounded to her death. By suicide if you believe the official line.
Better celebrate her life instead around LA and in Hollywood and Venice Beach… forever the California Girl.
A concrete story
The Mob in Vegas: And Las Vegas is built on conspiracy with every gambler who has ever lost his shirt able to blame the house.
Of course Las Vegas was built on Mob money and on top of crooks who have crossed then.
You can learn all about all the shady goings-on at the Mob Museum
It’s an offer you can’t refuse.
