In their own words, "UPI Hears" (and then proceeds to spread silly rumors):

Former chief economist for the Department of Labor during President George W. Bush's first term Morgan Reynolds comments that the official story about the collapse of the WTC is "bogus" and that it is more likely that a controlled demolition destroyed the Twin Towers and adjacent Building No. 7.

Because, of course, an economist -- especially an economist who used to work for President Bush and know has joined the Loony Left's Conspiracy Brigade -- knows more about heat and blast induced fatigue in structural steel and the catastrophic failure of lattices than the forensic engineers, structural engineers, architects, firemen, and material engineers quoted here by NOVA and here on TLC.

It's knowing that otherwise seemingly intelligent people can in fact be quite loony coupled with the fact that civil servants are no better or worse than the population at large that proves, to me at least, to be one of the most powerful arguments there is for limited government.

And shame on UPI for peddling and propogating this 9/11 conspiratorial nonsense that is better left to self promoting, anti-American lunatics like Thierry Meysann

* Yet Another Small Government Argument (inspired by YACC, for you Unix geeks).
