Today is a big step in whether or not we know if the Sonics are coming back as the investors and our Mayor are in NYC to pitch their case on why the NBA owners should allow the sale of the Kings to go through. Yesterday we learned that over 44,000 people have expressed interest in buying season tickets…the energy is there for sure!
Also…if you are on Twitter…follow be @stp999 and the website www.SonicsRising.com is encouraging fans to show support for Chris Hansen, Mayor Mike McGinn and King County Executive Dow Constantine via twitter by using the hashtag #GoSonics during this morning’s presentation to the NBA Board of Governors.
Public Policy Polling just released the results of a new survey where they asked Americans to weigh in on whether they believe a bunch of different possible conspiracy theories. Here are the top five Americans believe in:
1. 51% believe Lee Harvey Oswald did NOT act alone in killing JFK, and that it was part of a larger conspiracy.
2. 44% believe President Bush intentionally misled the American public about whether Iraq had WMDs leading up to the Iraq War.
3. 37% believe global warming is a hoax.
4. 29% believe in aliens.
5. 28% of us believe there's a secret group of elites who are conspiring to take over the world . . .
--Here are some other results:
4% believe there are, quote, "shape-shifting reptilian people" who have taken human form, gotten elected to political office, and now run the world.
5% believe PAUL MCCARTNEY was really killed in a car accident in 1966, and was replaced by a look-alike.
7% believe the moon landing was faked.
Based on a survey about things that people believe…what is something that happened to you that NOBODY believes actually happened? Here are the texts we got:
