Hi Justin,

Rush and Alex, and even Bill Maher, are NOT fair and balanced. Not by any stretch. They have a political agenda to push, and they do it very well.

Jones in particular appeals to a, shall we say, certain segment of the population that will jump on any suggestion of conspiracy. For the record, I am a skeptic, but I'm in the "not evil, just wrong" camp. But you need to be careful. The conspiracy theorists won't hesitate to jump on that and use it shamelessly for their own purposes. But that's really getting off topic and we've got plenty of threads on that subject elsewhere, too.

It gives the genuine skeptics a really bad name and just makes them look like fools.

Thanks.

We'll see how it goes. :))
