I’m not the paranoid sort. I think that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. NASA really did put men on the moon. The CIA did not create HIV. Gulf War Syndrome is largely myth. The Council on Foreign Relations doesn’t control the world. Nor does the Illuminati, the Masons, Skull & Bones, the VFW, your local Moose Lodge, or that crazy guy at the corner of Geary and Polk who’s always muttering to himself.
That said, it’s hard for a blogger not to be at least a teensy bit paranoid this week.
I say that because this morning, I noticed a new meme in the MSM — one that gained currency just as the Jordan Affair gathered steam. The earliest reference to the meme I could find this year appeared in the relatively obscure Scotsman.com on January 12:

Monday, February 14:
It seems as though as much effort as the MSM didn’t put into the Jordan story, it did put into dire warnings about the dangers of being a blogger.
Coincidence? I wonder…
