Coinkydink? You Decide

One of the conventions or truisms in postmodern America is that when something is a "conspiracy theory," it's crazy, perpetrated by outer-fringe whackos who can't tell the Good Book from the Hale-Bopp comet. And maybe the following suggests an M.O. on the part of the Administration that isn't entirely on the up-and-up, which some will reject out of hand on the "conspiracy theory" basis.

Turns out that this is not the first time such a thing has happened.
