It’s been said that if you get enough monkeys randomly typing for a long enough time, they will produce the works of William Shakespeare
That thought came to mind as I was reading a web link provided in an email from Deep Birther. The link was to an article by Martha Trowbridge at The Terrible Truth blog. Trowbridge has made a name for herself in birther circles with her alternate biographical stories about Barack Obama including him being fathered by Malcolm X.
I looked at the particular article in question briefly, and decided it was really too crazy to delve into. Whenever I decide not to look into something I feel a little defensive. I can imagine an argument being thrown at me: “just because Trowbridge has been proven wrong before [e.g. in the case of saying Obama went to Indonesia at age 2 to live with President Suharto] that doesn’t mean she’s wrong now.” That’s true. However, it is also true that just because a dozen monkeys have not come up with the works of William Shakespeare yet that they won’t do it today.
If I want to read Shakespeare, I go to the library and not the zoo.
