Mentioned on tonight's Murphy's Saloon: The Podfather Adam Curry and his uncharacteristic, illogical belief in overblown conspiracy theories, and Gerald Posner's book Case Closed (the logic of which is an excellent antidote to all such conspiracy theories). The audio clip at the beginning of this episode is from the 1987 film The Untouchables, directed by Brian DePalma and starring Robert DeNiro, Kevin Costner, Sean Connery, Andy Garcia and Charles Martin Smith. The Untouchables is available for just $9.99 from Amazon.com.

Please note: If this is your first visit to Murphy's Saloon, and you want to hear more, you can skip the first 10-12 episodes with a completely clear conscience. Really. Trust me on this one.
