It's been one of those weeks. With Richard's 9/11 Truth conference just around the corner, he's been very nervous and busy. Then I learned that one of the speakers, in addition to making some really bizarre comments about Amy Goodman, also has disturbing opinions on the Holocaust. I was suddenly caught between supporting my man's work (even though I don't agree with the conclusions of Truthers) and following my conscience. My conscience won the battle and I will not be attending or supporting the conference in any way, but to say that was an easy decision would be a lie. This is extremely awkward for me.
