    Unhappy it was 30 yrs ago today....

    30 yrs ago today.. the largest mass suicide took place in a remote Guyana jungle encampment called Jonestown.

    Read the story of my friend and fellow journalist Jeff as he looks back on that day. His father was there working as a journalist for NBC News when it took place back in 1978.

    It's a long story.. sorry. But it's a good read.

    I saw the two hours special on MSNBC last weekend, sad is an understatement, to think this guy was able to manipulate that many followers.

    The saying "drink the Kool-Aid" came from this tragedy, isn't it?
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    I remember it like it was yesterday. Now you know where the reference to "drinking the kool-aid" originated from.

    ^^^+1. Unfortunately, the lesson is STILL not learned
    I refuse to argue with idiots, because people can't tell the DIFFERENCE!
