Conspiracy theories abound

The president of a Kiwanis Club in east Alabama decided Thursday to bar the media from a speech that Republican gubernatorial candidate Roy Moore delivered to the group, saying the meeting's agenda was meant to be non-political.

Some observers might speculate that the president quite understandably made that decision to avoid intensive media attention or to protect club members' privacy. But according to The Birmingham News, Moore's speculation was of quite a different nature: "that the [Gov. Bob] Riley campaign may have been putting pressure on the club so Moore's message would not get out as he was gaining momentum."

Riley's spokesman, for the record, said that, um, that wasn't so.
