Good heavens! This is terrible news indeed! Where will I go for my  
weekly dose of the latest info on BatBoy, Bigfoot, and the ghosts of  
Anna Nicole and/or Elvis, aliens visiting the White House, and last,  
but not least, the finest in non-coastal bipartisan intolerance  
punditry by the One True Master, in each week's installment of "My  
America" by Ed Anger???

There's always the New York Post, I suppose, but it's just not the  
same, and The Fortean Times is far too demanding, intellectually.  
Maybe Weird New Jersey would do, but you probably need to actually  
live in NJ to get the full effect.

I remember hosting dinner parties years ago, using a polished wooden  
table and unfolded pages of the WWN as place mats. People would read  
theirs, then locate the other guest who had the page with the  
continuation on Page 26 of the article about being abducted and used  
as Bigfoot's love slave. It made for quite jovial gatherings, if  
perhaps a little messy.
