"You know, that's a good point. But, we did end up having Pearl Harbor. And we did get into the war. It happened after all."

"Indeed," the Hatter said, "but that's another conspiracy. Which brings me back to my questions about this week's event, real or not. Who benefits and why. ISIS? Well, we shall see."

"If not ISIS, then who? And why?" the Rabbit asked.

"Well, we shall see." The Mad Hatter poured himself some Glen Livet. "Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes was prescient a century ago: 'There's an east wind coming all the same, such a wind as never blew on England yet. It will be cold and bitter, Watson, and a good many of us may wither before its blast. But it's God's own wind none the less, and a cleaner, better, stronger land will lie in the sunshine when the storm has cleared.'" The Hatter poured a second glass for the Rabbit. "Drink up, my friend. Holmes was an optimist."

"And you?"

"I'm an atheist--and I'm mad."
