Mikey Metz Still Blogging

I checked out his blog periodically during October and didn't see any new content, but Mikey did put up several posts late in the month and has changed the look of the site. The college newspaper put up an article about the post that went 'round the blogosphere.

In the blog he writes about his "change of heart" concerning the 9/11 Truth movement, and presents his own account of what happened on 9/11, completely contrary to what he believed when he started the UAlbany Truth chapter. The blog has over one-hundred comments with mixed reactions. To some, Metzger is a patriot, to others he is a traitor. The blog was picked up and reposted by both sides of the spectrum and ultimately wound up on Digg.com, and has been 'liked' over one-hundred fifty times.

He replies to a post at 9-11 Blogger attacking him, and salutes JREF forum member Diagoras for being a fellow "extruther". I like this part:

What also helped was quitting pot. I don't know if the same goes for you, but my personal observation is that most truthers are total potheads. A different breed than your typical pothead-- they can remain somewhat coherent and actually engage in activity if compelled enough. They think that they have a rare ability to work through their highs, and in some cases it's true. Unfortunately for them, they neglect to realize the effects that chronic pot-smoking has on reasoning, critical thinking, and outright paranoid delusions.

Put down the bong, guys!
