Thanks for these articles, Tom. I felt so much frustration while reading them & thought I had a lot to say about them but the articles speak for themselves. I remember reading the first few when they came out & remember seeing the picketing in front of "The Examiner" office on TV - think I remember seeing your dad walking among the picketers. Even as a young teenager, I knew "The Examiner" was censoring something very important. As you know, a lot of this story unfolded in my backyard & had a profound effect on Mendocino County government although it seems that the lessons learned then have all been lost now as Tim Stoen has been welcomed back to the DA's office there time & time again since he & Jones steamrolled through there all those years ago.
Thanks for what you do. It's important.

Indeed, Robin, those of us that remember exactly where we were at the time the news broke of the Jonestown Massacre (massacre, as in mass murder, not "suicide"), this event carries an anguish, as did that horrific day in Dallas 44 years ago tomorrow. Just imagine if a horde of Lee Harvey Oswald fans were given carte blanche. The only thing more outrageous than returning Tim Stoen to the very same D.A.'s office--where he once plotted murder and helped enslave a community--is our national mass media's coverup of their shameless role in allowing the cult crime of the century.
