Naturally I am joking about hogtying Steve Jackson, ha ha. Seriously tho, this bit from him from the link above has some tid bits and he explains he is open to discussing the subject further. Also, he places "conspiracy theory" in quotes which can mean at times, one doesn't agree with the general parlance of the word, but uses it in an ironic context. Steve should be President of Games and yet we do not have such a position in the government yet, sadly. But on the day of Sept 11 2001, occupancy of the WTC was estimated at some 3000 folks, and they were about to become players in some horror which others call "game".
