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.
ESPN reporter Jose Mendez, was fired for an article he recently submitted to his editor following an interview he had with Minnesota Vikings Quarterback Brett Favre. The article was titled "Favre retirement a sure thing". Our source, which wishes to remain anonymous, said that the editor flew into a fit of rage. "He kept pounding the desk yelling 'What kind of idiot believes anything Brett Favre says'. I thought he was going to punch (Mendez) in the mouth".
Editor Tom Harkin did respond to our inquiry with the following response. "Brett Favre throwing back across his body to a receiver in double coverage in a tie playoff game, that is a rookie mistake. But for a journalist, taking Brett Favre seriously is positively unacceptable. That's not inexperience, it's just plain stupid."
Mendez did post the following quote that he attributed to Favre on his blog. "It's a tough decision to retire, but it has to be made and this will definitely be my last year. I hate to talk about it during the season, but I wanted to get it out of the way early this year so I can focus on getting ready to play next year."
We here at The Axis of Stevil Show wish Brett the best both in his retirement, and in his comeback next year.
