Reader: Comets, nuclear tests, Barack Obama & conspiracy theories that may hold water

Last week, in advance of President Barack Obama's visit to the Denver area tomorrow, the Interwebs were rife were rumors that the trip was somehow related to the Comet Elenin or a secret nuclear test possibly involving Denver International Airport. Crazy? Maybe, but one reader warns not to dismiss all conspiracy theories out of hand.

Don't forget that mankind's recorded of history is a chronicle of conspiracies. Don't believe in conspiracies? Go down to the courthouse any day of the week and sift through the various charges being presented against defendants. Nowadays any crime that involves more than one defendant has a conspiracy charge thrown in for good measure.
