Two conspiracy theorists die and go to heaven. St. Peter tells them that Heaven is a place of all knowledge, so they can each ask him one question and he will reveal the answer to them. The first one says "Who killed John F. Kennedy?" St. Peter says "Lee Harvey Oswald." The other says "Who was he working with?" St. Peter says "He acted alone." The two of them look at each other and say "Wow! The coverup is bigger than we thought!" But seriously, what keeps this stuff going? Some would say the evidence. Other would say mental illness. I myself am unsure, and I have a hard time really focusing on this one as I didn't live through it. This article is pretty much a starting point for me and a note to self. Steve, debunk this one.

BENNINGTON, VT -- Police say four people TRIED to steal the GIANT pepper atop a Chili's restaurant in Vermont. Police say the four ran 470 feet of EXTENSION CORD across a FOUR-LANE ROAD to power a drill. "They really didn't plan it," said Sgt. Camillo Grande. An Alarm went off about 4:30 a.m. Police found the man on the roof and the three women they said were lookouts. (A NOTE from the content czar: If you were wondering, YES, I often carry around that much extension cord with me and if it happens to go across a four lane road and attach itself to a drill.. It wasn't planned!)

Albertville, AL -- A 37 year old Alabama mom has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child. Police say she let her daughter RIDE in a cardboard box ON TOP of the van as she went down a State Highway. The police were called when people reported the child sitting on top of the van. The police arrested her. When she was asked about the incident, she said the BOX was too big to fit inside the van, and that her daughter was holding it down. The woman also told the Police Officers that it was SAFE because she had used a cloths hanger to secure the box to the van. Her 13 year old daughter was unharmed and turned over to relatives. A jail worker said the mother was out on bond by Monday.

Los Angeles -- Explosives and a marijuana farm were discovered at a Southern California home that doubled as a licensed day care center. After the man blew off four of his fingers authorities said that Benjamin Kuzelka, 23 went to the Loma Linda Medical Center and told the doctors that he had shot himself in the hand. The Doctors, however, became suspicious because his injuries did not look consistent with a gunshot wound. Investigators were sent to the home and when they arrived they found a sophisticated marijuana-growing facility and evidence of explosives. Furthermore, the home had been used as recently as the day before as a state-licensed child care facility. This led the to arrest of his mother Rebecca Kuzelka, 55 and his brother Greg Kuzelka, 21. Benjamin Kuzelka was arrested upon discharge from the hospital.
