Tinfoil Hat Time

OK, the Confidence Man had been vaguely aware of the Laura-Bush-nee-Welch-killed-her-teen-sweetheart-in-a-vehicular-homicide rumors, but only recently ran across the legit confirmation of said rumors.

Now, what jumps out from these accounts is a rather, shall we say, suspicious confluence of details: November 6, 1963? North Texas? As in ... two weeks before November 22, 1963, and only a 6-1/2 hour drive away from here?

OK, one other thing jumps out at the Confidence Man from the USA Today report: Laura Bush has an astonishing instinct for the wrong choice of words. Mrs. Bush 'did say in March, when asked at a campaign stop about the crash, ''I know this as an adult, and even more as a parent, it was crushing ... for the family involved and for me as well.'''

"Crushing"?!? Jesus, that's sick.
