"In 1980, Moon made more friends in South America when Bolivia’s Cocaine Coupplotters seized power in a terrifying alliance of fledgling cocaine cartels, international neo-Nazis and right-wing Bolivian military officers. Before the coup, WACL associates, such as Alfred Candi, allegedly had coordinated the arrival of some of the paramilitary operatives who assisted in the violent coup."

I guess this is more lucrative than Moonies selling flowers at the airport.

These modern-day comic books—aimed at adults—use high quality art in graphic format to convey substantial topics such as historical and autobiographical accounts. The first titles to launch Reed Graphica in Fall 2003 include Comanche Moon and David Chelsea in Love. The imprint is compiled by consulting editor Calvin Reid of Publishers Weekly, who has played a crucial role in pushing the graphic novel format into the trade. Now one of the fastest growing trends in publishing, Graphic novels will increasingly be found in major and independent bookstores and online. Reed Press will be one of the premiere publishers to successfully bring this alternative literary format into the trade, institutional, and library markets."

"PERHAPS THERE'S HOPE American and European astronomers say they have discovered the three smallest planets ever detected outside the solar system, raising the likelihood that the galaxy is teeming with Earth-like planets. Up to now, the 135 planets spotted orbiting distant stars had all been gas giants like Jupiter and Saturn. One of the discoverers of the smaller planets, Paul Butler of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, said, "We estimate there is something like 20 billion planetary systems existing in our Milky Way galaxy alone." Somewhere among them, we can now hope, there may be at least one planet harboring intelligent life."
That Wasn't the Week That Was, by William Falk, NY Times Op/Ed, September 5, 2004
Yeah, 20 billion planetary systems, you'd think there'd be at least one planet with intelligent life on it.
