News Briefs 25-09-2007

I'm the last news editor standing: Jameske's fallen sick, Greg's away spreading the 'flu virus to others, and Kat is having computer problems. I'm expecting a satellite to crash through my ceiling at any minute.

Hi Rick,
No, the head wasn't spinning when I started, but since then some of the comments are leading me that way. By the way, I'm thinking of taking into 'possession' one satellite ... :-)

After trying to post my cmment for FOR 2 HOURS last night, and always receiving the error message from WordPress, I was very much tempted to fetch some holy water and start yelling THE POWER OF CHRIST COMPELLS YOU!!

Love this comment, Red. Shall I ask Wordpress if they want an official exorcist? :-)

Quote:

Helping him, he says, are his three invisible companions. "Angel" is the neutral force, he says. "Armand" is a benign influence. "Luis," whom Mr. Floro describes as the "king of kings," is an avenger.

I wanted to bring this up because, eventhough I don't know what to think about this judge and his mixing of his personal beliefs with his job as a public officer, what I found odd was this simmilarity between the TRIAD forces he says he is in contact with, and what I have read in the books of Whitley Strieber.

Strieber talks about the visitors in the sense that many times they seem to operate by the rule of the triad: there's a positive force, a negative force, and a neutral that binds the other two, keeping the triad in constant equilibrium. In the novel The Grays, Strieber uses this rule to portray the characters of the aliens known as "the three bandits".

Coincidence?

That's an excellent observation, RPJ. Catholicism is also dominant religion in the Philippines, and the triad is strong in that faith. It's interesting that instead of being shunned and ridiculed, the ex-Judge is now a popular celebrity -- so despite Catholicism's rule, alternative beliefs still blossom.

Well Rick, apparently they are after you editors. best keep moving so they can't get you.

It's a good quote. The guy who failed is famous (nobody remembers his team), and few people know the guy who made it safely.
