I hope you enjoyed the 150th post, gentle readers. I had fun writing it.
After I signed off last night, I went to bed comparitively early and slept for many hours. I did wake up in the middle of the night, though, and switched between two radio stations that both carry Coast to CoastAM. 940 and 1080 AM. I woke up in time to hear discussion of the mayor Centerton, Arkansas, who resigned last week after claiming he had been living under an assumed name since 1980, following a brainwashing by satanists.
Hey, this happens all the time.
I have been googling this guy, Ken Williams. He has a website where he, as a Christian, espouses an extremely conservative Christian belief. A little of that stuff goes a long way with me.
Who knows why Mr. Williams is doing this? Perhaps it is his way to disavow the past 28 years of his life, to distance himself from some other things he may have said or done over the years.
On the afore-mentioned Coast-to-Coast AM, the host interviewed a sociologist for 20 minutes or so. The doctor explained that this Williams story didn't hold a lot of water. "Brainwashing" is a term that people throw about without really knowing what it means. And there has not been a single documented case of "Satanists" brainwashing anything or anyone. And Satanists aren't organized well enough to do much of anything.
Late night talk radio is fun, isn't it?
