Bits and Pieces
Remember Sean Fitzgerald, the Truther who killed his father? Not guilty by reason of insanity:
Gilbert placed Sean Fitzgerald in the custody of the State Hospital in Pueblo, where he will remain for an undetermined amount of time until doctors and the courts determine if and when he is well enough to be released.
I am pleased that the reporter got the facts right on Sean's delusions starting before his bicycle accident:
Medical witnesses testified that Fitzgerald’s mental illness surfaced at least 10 days prior to the murder, while he was living in Thailand. He began telling people that the Thai government was following him.
The symptoms began even before he suffered a concussion when the bicycle he was riding collided with a truck. Details of how that accident occurred are unclear, but a forensic psychiatrist who examined Fitzgerald raised the possibility that he might have deliberately veered into the truck.
Meanwhile a Truther proposes a "Debunker Honesty Test":
I tend to think that if an individual finds nothing strange about the case of WTC 7 (and that is just one example), they are likely either dishonest or in denial. This is how I'd summarize it:
The 47-storey WTC 7 was destroyed in a way that rivals a highly skilled controlled demolition. Could office fires (=the final official explanation) replace the time-consuming and expensive practice of controlled demolition? Just light a few fires and expect a highrise to come symmetrically to its foundations into a neat pile of rubble a few hours later? Sounds quite economical to me!
Well it is certainly quite economical. Unless you count the $1.4 BILLION in damage the collapse of WTC-7 caused to the Verizon Building. At that point you might notice that the damage caused by the destruction of WTC-7 amounted to far more than even the value of that building. And that's before we talk about the damage to other buildings, such as Fiterman Hall.
