As the lunar conspiracies turn

The April letter, “Letter writers run the spectrum”, ended with the question: “After all, a nation than can fake a lunar landing can take out the trash, right?”

My initial reaction in reading the letter was delight, however, disappointment set in as I reread the letter and decided the author was writing “tongue-in-cheek”.

For a moment, I thought I had found a person who believed that lunar landing was faked, which in turn would provide proof for my theory that the earth has been invaded by space aliens. The proof was (in my opinion) the only way a person cold believe that the United States staged the lunar landing would be if that person was from another planet.
