The town of Shawano, WI claims a local group with a history of controversy
called the Samanta Roy Institute of Science & Technology (SIST)
profiled in this WSAW TV investigative series (part 1
, part 2
, part 3
& part 4
) is a murderous cult that tried to hire a hitman to assassinate 60 prominent citizens
including the mayor, city administrator, city treasurer, city attorney, police chief, judges, investigators & fire commissioners. SIST returns the favor & claims it's the mayor who's running a cult (part 1
, part 2
), calling her the Minister of Propaganda. As a CBS investigative team found out, things are tense
in this sleepy town. The FBI says it's keeping an eye on the situation

Sinister cult hijacks Weblogs.com?
While working on an application that finds patterns in the data supplied by Weblogs.com, Mo Morgan
found some disturbing patterns:
"[...] between midnight and five there had been over 60 pings to Weblogs.com from sites that contained the string "srichinmoy" in their URI."
At first it just looks like some idiot abusing the ping
system. Or could this be something altogether more sinister?
