The Modern Illuminati
Despite our tendency to believe in some pretty wild suppositions even when they're not backed by evidence, we don't generally buy into conspiracy theories, even when evidence is bountiful. In Online Journal, Michael Hasty observes that when enough evidence piles up, it becomes nuttier not to believe. In the Spectator, John Laughland jumps from a similar takeoff point, but ends up detailing how, in a world crawling with covert agents, we should assume that things are not what they seem to be.

New links: Under "Good Blogs," I've added Joshua Micah Marshall's Talking Points Memo--this guy is plugged into Washington tighter than anybody else in the blogosphere. I've also added Columbia Journalism Review's Campaign Desk, which is examining media coverage of the presidential campaign, and will quickly become indispensable.
