Saw this "Poem to the Editor" in the paper version of this community rag. Supposed to be written by "a terminally ill young girl in a New York Hospital."

Jedi could become official religion
-- An email is circulating in New Zealand seeking 8,000 people to write "Jedi" as their religion on that country's census form. If they do, it's claimed the government will have to recognize the Star Wars discipline as an actual religion.

even Kooky, what do you think it is?
It seems that these days every other post has something to do with politics or dotcoms, Art Bell is coming back
and it would be fun to do something of his range. How about best/funniest ghost/supernatural pic you can find on the net and then your explanation. There was mine.

So have you heard the one about the Golden Persian Princess Mummy?
Discovered in October by Pakistani police during a murder investigation of an antiquities smuggler, this story has only gotten weirder. Said to be 2,600-years-old, the body of a young woman has been preserved using the Egyptian
mummification process but bears cuneiform inscriptions in Old Persian: "I, daughter of Xerxes, the great king, I am Ruduamna". Since its discovery, the governments of Iran and Afghanistan have each claimed ownership of the mummy and all three countries are now engaged in a bitter war of claim and counter-claim. Now some experts are starting to say that the whole thing looks like it's just an elaborate hoax

This girl is, literally, fighting for her life.
Her name is Kaycee, she's 18, and she is desperately fighting cancer. And if everyone could put down their mice, stop typing on their keyboards, close up their browsers, and think one good thought
for this girl -- and her family
-- maybe, hopefully, it would help.
Halcyon's set up a message board for her.
If you're so moved, you know what to do...

You are a loser because I say so.
Ellison, the second richest person in the world, decides to give some come-upance to the intellectual elite his human resource people are probably now kicking themselves in the head over.

The next Sith Lord?
Darth Kawasaki? This guy looks like a bad-a** and no doubt has the talent, but come on! Darth Maul had the ultimate look and feel. We barely got to know him! Bring him back! Clone Maul!

"It is already possible for an assassin to send someone an e-mail with an innocent-looking attachment connected to it. When the receiver downloads the attachment, the electrical current and molecular structure of the central processing unit is altered, causing it to blast apart like a large hand grenade

Y2K Spoof Flick Goes Awry
"This FBI agent called," said Zieper. "He said, 'There are a lot of people planning to vacation in New York this year, a lot of them are coming to your site and they're getting scared. I want to talk to you about how we can stop people from coming to this site.'" ... see the flick here
. The FBI is full of a bunch of weirdos.

Recently, MTV had a special on 'hackers'
(scroll down to last weeks show), but apparently the people they contacted for background info didn't give them an interesting enough story. So the guys made one up
. The guy behind it all says he was just trying to make MTV's journalists look bad, but that's restating the obvious. Of course MTV is clueless and goes to any length to create a story. The worst part is that MTV isn't alone in this, every news outlet does this. The nightly news looks the way it does for the same reasons, it's all about entertainment.
