Moronic Conspiracy Theories Still More Popular than Reality



September 10, 2009 – Comments (5)

Even when it's horribly written conspiracy. That's the lesson of Dan Brown, writer of probably the worst novels I've ever read. And DC will now have to cope with his awful "symbologist" fiction.

My conspiracy hypothesis has to do with the Maryland Dept. of Tourism throwing money at Brown to write a book that might help boost tourism.

Now I'm wondering how important tourism is to the GDP?

I haven't read his most recent one and I would only read it out of curiosity if at all. I cringed when I read DaVinci Code which most assurdly does not have a biblical view of the Deity of Christ. However, it did make me want to visit the Louvre and Roslyn Chapel.

I hate to disagree, but I like Brown's novels.  They're good, mindless entertainment.  The movies on the otherhand...not very good.  Despite the fact that I love Tom Hanks (Castaway is an awesome movie), they were not very well done.

Angels and Deamons was better than the Da Vinci Code, but both served their purpose. 

I'll read the new Dan Brown book, but I'm not in a hurry.  In the realm of fiction I prefer Michael Connelly.  I've been more into non-fiction lately, specifically on a Winston Groom kick.  I'm reading Patriotic Fire right now and I just picked up 1942, The Year that Tried Men's Souls at the library yesterday. 

Yes, the library.  I prefer to buy books, but I've decided to try to cut back by borrowing them.  Perhaps this is a sign that consumer spending will remain weak for some time to come (or that I have to fork over more than $1,500 per month for day care for my babies right now :) ).

I agree with you deej Angels & Demons was a easier read whereas Da Vinci Code was hard to get into and didn't really hold my attention.  The movie Da Vinci Code I thought was poorly done.  I have yet to see Angels & Demons.  A & G was a hard book for me to put down.  I will probably read Dan Brown's newest addition

Eesh! Any way those Dan Brown tourists could be rerouted to the CFI?

Maybe we should start planting (extremely simple) clues...
