White Rabbits - Heavy Metal
Brooke,I really think you could have gone farther with the "Faces of Death - monkey brains" listener mail story. Thanks for acknowledging the research of those who wrote in to "prove" that live monkey brain eating DOES exist. But isn't the deeper story here that the admission of the director of the infamous movie that the scene was faked, instantly brought relief to those who believed the movie? I know that the moon landing in "Capricorn One" was staged, because it was a movie, does that prove that the moon landing was fake? People were eating monkeys, brains and all long before "Faces of Death". The movie came out and millions became suddenly aware of it. Then the directors admits it was faked, so now people who listen to OTM believe that monkey brains are not eaten. The power of the Media to tell the "truth" by lying and destroy the "truth" by being honest. Rense and repeat forever.
Comment on your comments about a viewer's comments regarding an OTM guest's comments? OK, sure. I'll bite.
I'm glad you gave a dissenting legal view to that advice about citizens having the right to resist an unlawful arrest. It sounded far too good to be true, even in the Land of the Free.
