Accord­ing to Moon­al­ice leg­end, some­where in the world there was a hid­den con­spir­acy — known as The Con­spir­acy — that planned and con­nived for cen­turies to take over. The Conspiracy’s strat­egy was to elect a dis­hon­est moron to the pres­i­dency and then rip off every­thing of value. For the longest time, they couldn’t get it done. Then they found a can­di­date from the end of the alpha­bet. He and his cronies did an Al Capone on the place until there was noth­ing left. Not even the sewer. The end.

That’s what the leg­end says. We didn’t think much of it until we saw a report in the New York Times that some­body has stolen 2,500 man­hole cov­ers in Philadel­phia over the past year. That may not strike you as a big deal, but his­tor­i­cally Philly only lost 100 man­hole cov­ers a year. It’s prob­a­bly just a coincidence.
