The White Hat Mystery

Mercury 8 Theory

At a press conference in Washington, D.C., on April 9,1959, NASA introduced the Mercury Seven to the public. After a thorough, exhaustive, extensive and careful look into government documents, I have determined without a shadow of a doubt that actor Don Knotts was, in fact, chosen as one of the original Mercury astronauts.

In photo A you will notice that Don has been airbrushed out of his spot third from the right:

In photo B you will notice that the remaining seven are wearing their official white hats that are identical to the hat in photo C which Don kept after 'leaving' the astronaut corps:



You can also see in photo B that Wally Schirra(third from the right) is visibly upset as he receives the news of Don's departure.
Deke Slayton(right) appears to be receiving the bad news as this photo clearly indicates.

But, as you know, Don went on to bigger and better things:



Ahhhh.....well....it's just a theory....
Besides...my investigation connecting Obama and William Ayers soaping windows together in Chicago came to a dead end.

Sure, those flyboys were more manly than we lesser mortals, but did any of them rise to the status of Love Gods?

Don Knotts did!
