    Remember the horror of Jonestown and the koolaid.. this week is the 3oth anniversary.. it was a truly horrific event..

    10 days that shook S.F.

    Just a reminder of the characteristics of a cult..

    Marcia Rudin's 14 Common Characteristics of a Cult

    Gotta watch out for those cults and their members..

    I was watching that show last night. I never knew they practiced drinking the suicide punch. Also ... I never knew he rambled on the PA system almost nonstop ... what a living hell that place was. Those close to him saw it all coming as he was hooked on drugs ... a rather sad story of the vunerable being used and abused.

    Wasn't Ted Kaczynski a Math PhD?

    Wasn't Ted Bundy a Boy Scout?

    Wasn't Jeffrey Dahmer a soldier in the Army?

    Stupidity is easy and fun....
