I hinted that I was working on some research related to the Lucas Smith Kenyan Birth Certificate that I hoped to be finished yesterday or today. It’s taking longer than expected although I have hopes to be done tomorrow. At this point I don’t know whether it will amount to anything or not. One thing I learned is that I am not cut out to be a detective. On TV they move from hot lead to hot lead. It seems that in real life, you strike out most of the time.
One of the things on my mind is just what to call the document. Epectitus, in his hilarious (but obviously aporcyphal) YouTube video of Smith in Mombasa, calls it the “POSFKBC.” I haven’t been able to find the origin or derivation of this acronym although “KBC” almost certainly stands for “Kenyan birth certificate.” I guess I will muddle over choosing a name for a little longer.
Ruminations about credibility were also part of my day. The Post & Email blog says that they talked to Heltan Maganga who told them that the POSFKBCwas not authentic — or did they? I never saw that article personally and it’s not there that I can find right now. The Post & Email blog is not high on my credibility list anyway, although I tend to believe the interview they had with Mr. Omolo back in 2009. Is this confirmation bias?
I checked site statistics. We average about 2,200 visitors a day here at Obama Conspiracy Theories; that’s about the population of my home town when I left it back in 1972. Site stability seems good, although it is still not as fast as I would wish — partly because the pages are so darned large. While I was fooling around, I added an experimental US Flag widget (lower right). It will show when the American flag should fly at half staff.
