This turns out to be mostly false. The issue in question mostly pre-dated the Murdoch takeover. Still, not a good sign.

Thanks, Jurgan.

Also thanks, MaryAnn, for posting it so that Jurgan could bring the whole flap to our attention and we don’t get our knickers in a twist.

I’m inclined to hold off judgment until I know more about the article’s content. Maybe the “secret” revealed is that seemingly supernatural phenomena have perfectly reasonable explanations.

So basically it’s an episode of Scooby-Doo.

In that sense, the entire history of science is an episode of Scooby-Doo. :-)

My favorite episode is “Scooby-Doo Meets the Insane Clown Posse.” Most of the episode is Velma trying to explain magnets and getting increasingly frustrated.

(I’m writing this in the middle of the night, and I can’t tell if it makes any sense, but I think it’s funny.)
