    The heirs of an Apache chieftain whose remains are rumored to be held inside Yale's oldest secret society filed a lawsuit today demanding the return of their ancestor's skull. Twenty descendants of the legendary Apache chieftain Geronimo are suing the federal government, the University and the society Skull & Bones in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to seek the return of his remains as well as punitive damages. One hundred years ago today, Geronimo died of pneumonia at Fort Sill, Okla., but the suit alleges members of the society exhumed his remains in 1918 or 1919 and...
  • Sure it's fiction. But many Turks see fact in anti-US novel

    ISTANBUL, TURKEY – The year is 2007. After a clash with Turkish forces in northern Iraq, US troops stage a surprise attack. Reeling, Turkey turns to Russia and the European Union, who turn back the American onslaught. This is the plot of "Metal Storm," one of the fastest- selling books in Turkish history. The book is clearly sold as fiction, but its premise has entered Turkey's public discourse in a way that sometimes seems to blur the line between fantasy and reality. "The Foreign Ministry and General Staff are reading it keenly," Murat Yetkin, a columnist for the Turkish daily...
  • Conspiracies “R” Us

    What is it about a conspiracy that makes them believable to some otherwise intelligent people? From time to time I receive e-mails, which purport to tell me, nay prove, all manner of wild conspiracies. That President Bush is a Satan worshipper in league with the ‘real’ Prince of Darkness (who I thought was Robert Novak or Darth Vader). Apparently together they are going place the entire planet under a United Nations government with U. N. Secretary General Kofi Annan replacing Vice President Cheney as the puppet master who controls the Bush marionette. This conspiracy “theory” is currently en vogue.

    So here we are, staring down a rather historic moment amidst the sputtering ideological orgy that is the American experiment and if you're paying any sort of attention at all you're doubtlessly drunk on election hype and saturated with Bush/Kerry platitudes and you wish a white-hot death upon every screeching TV pundit who is right now analyzing yet another insidious national poll that seems to reveal everything and nothing at the exact same time. And Bush is out there right this very second stumping and sweating and blinking fast and defending his useless hideous little war and hurling snide little...

    Secret societies? UFOs? The truth about what *really* happened on 9/11? The media cowers I get this a lot: Hey Mark, you're a rather weird, unconventional columnist, why don't you quit toeing the typical blasé journalism line and renounce the corporate-controlled news feeds and standard pop-culture drivel and instead write about the real truths, the real and sinister power structures at work in America and the world? Like for example how both Kerry and Bush are members of mega-yuppie Yale secret society/boys' club Skull & Bones, and therefore suckle at the same tit of nefarious primeval Illuminati power and draw...

    Write-In's Not Just for MLB All-Star Voting AnymoreFor Bush or Against Bush... A Kerry in office would come back to bite the Demo's hard in a 2008 election. Someone even less charasmatic than Bush & with no solid plan on how to make for a better US is certainly no way for a party to gain ground with the American public -though it'd be hard to lose any more popularity points overseas. And either way, it's a no-win for the American public for either of these two to win the November vote. On paper, Bush & Kerry are essentially the...
