Last Show Recap

Strangeness in America

Earthfiles investigative reporter Linda Moulton Howe discussed the bizarre story of the alleged human-alien hybrid found dead in Los Angeles and said to be involved with the CIA; mysterious and spectacular crop formations found in the wheat fields of Wiltshire, England on the summer solstice this past June, and the breaking story about the sun going to sleep in 2030 and ushering in a brutal mini ice age across the planet.

In the first hour, political commentator and economist John Lott reacted to the shooting of two reporters in Virginia on Wednesday and the ramifications the event may have on gun laws.

Strangeness in America

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - September 12, 2006
Host: George Noory
Guests: Robert Schneck, Joyce Riley

Robert Schneck, America's historian of the strange, made his debut on the show. The author of The President's Vampire shared bizarre true stories that he's researched and collected. Among the incidents and accounts:

  • A massive dark shape appeared outside the window of serial killer Charles Starkweather.
  • Hysteria in Baltimore in 1951 over a tall thin figure making impossible leaps over rooftops (the case resembled the UK's Spring Heeled Jack).
  • Phantom invaders in Gloucester, MA in 1692 (around the time of the Salem Witch Trials).
  • Five young men who disappeared from Newark, NJ without a trace.
  • The shooting of Everett Turley that was mistakenly blamed on a Ouija board.
  • A minister in St. Louis who preached good health by leading his followers, the "Samaritans," to drink human blood.

Theories to explain some of the more mysterious or paranormal cases often tell us more about ourselves than the nature of the strange incidents, said Schneck, who pointed out that while many reports might involve mistakes, hoaxes and delusions, a certain percentage remain genuinely anomalous.

Gulf War Syndrome Update

First half-hour guest, advocate for veterans, Joyce Riley, reacted to a new finding by a panel which concluded there is no single "Gulf War syndrome" afflicting thousands. There are undeniably sick troops, and the Dept. of Defense is making an unbelievable statement, she said. Further, veterans will now clearly see the deception of the Pentagon.
