It's Over; The Fat Lady Has Sung.

Popular Mechanics did a great service after 9/11 when it released its own report busting the conspiracy theory myths that claim the US government had a hand in bringing down the World Trade Center towers and attacking the Pentagon. (Here.) Too bad Rosie O'Donnell didn't read the report before spouting off. The magazine responds to O'Donnell's outrageous claims at its blog. (Here)

I don't dispute O'Donnell's right to express herself and to believe whatever she wants to believe. It's a free country. That freedom gives me the right to call her an uninformed ignoramus for those views. And in this case, I wouldn't need to rely on the public figure defense in a libel suit because truth is an absolute defense. What a country!
