Welcome 2007 Students

Winter semester here at MU begins today, with appropriate levels of ice and cold. This web site and embedded blog will be your major source of information (besides the syllabus and actually attending class) on the doings of the course. I update this site as we go along so please check the date on anything you find in here. I just posted a pdf of the 2007 syllabus.

Beside announcements and readings, I will use the blog (and you should use the comments) to pass along conspiracy theory news and comment as it appears in the media and on the Internet during the semester. For instance, you can check out a local angle on something I will mention today in class, by reading this KC Pitch article on the so-called "9/11 Truth Movement" in Kansas City.
