  1. Myles, I do enjoy the heck out of your show. Really no need to apologize – even if you are British.

    One deeply disturbing aspect of the Sandy Hook conspiracy theorists I think deserves more exposure is how they have personally attacked witnesses (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/15/gene-rosen-sandy-hook-conspiracy-theory_n_2481912.html) and the mass doxxing of survivors. Conspiracy thinking hinges on an in-group/out-group mentality which removes much of the grounding for humane behavior. Letting these ideas go unchallenged sets dangerous precedents.
