Who is Dennis Rader?

Dennis L. Rader, 59, has worked as a compliance supervisor for Park City in charge of animal control, nuisances, inoperable vehicles and general code compliance since about 1990.

He grew up in the Park City area and has lived there ever since.

He worked for Coleman in the early 1970s -- as did two of BTK's early victims.

He served in the military during the Vietnam era and worked for years at a home security company in Wichita.

He attended WSU -- long linked to the BTK case -- where he graduated in 1979 with a major in Administration of Justice.

He is married and has grown children.

Presstitute? Media whore? 
The story of fake reporter "Jeff Gannon"/Jim Guckert gets stranger and stranger. Now it looks as if he has a past in gay male prostitution. Americablog has the whole seedy story.

Warning: Not exactly work safe (unless you work as a gay male prostitute.)

The Phony Newsman or, A Defense of the Family Name 
News Hounds has an interesting article on the possible origin of the "Gannon" pseudonym.

What you may not know is that there is another Gannon out there, closely related to the Bush administration - Gannon International. For months - because of the surname connection - I've been trying to find out which "Gannon" started this company, but to no avail. For the life of me I can't find a single reference in the company history or on the internet to a founding father (or mother) named "Gannon."

Jeff Gannon and the Valerie Plame Affair 
Pseudo-journalist and propaganda operative "Jeff Gannon" proved quite useful to the White House during the illegal outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame.

Spiderleaf has the timeline.

The Strange Case of "Jeff Gannon"  
In brief:

Jeff Gannon is a "reporter" for the Talon News Agency who has been accused of lobbing softball questions to President Bush in White House Press Briefings

In light of the recent revelations that some pundits and reporters have been taking cash for spreading the Bush Gospel, some bloggers (and others) got curious about Gannon and launched a multi-pronged investigation into his background.

Conspiracy ensued. Fake names, mysterious access to the White House, dummy companies, gay prostitution, and a curious silence from the principal parties.

Americablog has been covering it nicely.

Here's a good recap from MediaCitizen.

Atrios turned me on to it.

Daily Kos is following the story.

Could George Bush Sr really be Deep Throat? 

Mainstream medicine is beginning to explore the aisles of botanicas 

Hands that heal  
Interesting article on Pranic healing, a "drugless therapy that entails the transfer of an energy, whose existence is probably unknown to most of us, from healer to patient."

From the article:

The pranic healing therapist does not touch the body of the patient who sits in a meditative position.

The therapist scans the energy field to locate areas of imbalance, and removes the dirty, stagnant energy and infuses fresh vital energy. Since this is a scientific method, treatments are specific to conditions and results are consistent.


Pranic healing involves working on our bio-energy body or aura (which permeates the physical body, and extends a few inches beyond it) and our chakras (there are 11 major chakras in the body, each related to major organs in the body, each with its specific colour).

Disease first manifests itself in the aura, before even appearing in the physical body. Energy healing works on the aura level and corrects the blocked or malfunctioning chakras to cure the disease.


The master cites three major sources of prana: sun, air and earth. Trees and plants absorb so much prana from these sources that they exude an excess of it.

This explains why tired or sick people can benefit enormously by lying down under trees.

The Living Gargoyle  
In 1992, current owner of Gargoyle statue worked as a ranger officer in Austin, TX. In fall of 1992, officer responded to 911 distress call routed through dispatch indicating "GARGOYLE HAS COME ALIVE!!". Two minutes later, radio dispatch announced that gun shots had been fired from the same location. Officer was provided address where 911 call was initiated to investigate incident.

Officer pulled up to address where 911 call was made to find male & female homeowner standing in yard waiting for police. Officer notified them to immediately place any weapons they had on the ground (male was holding a 357 magnum pistol). Female approached officer in clear state of hysteria screaming that the Gargoyle statue had come alive. Male homeowner was asked to explain what had occured before the officer arrived at the residence.

Male indicated that the 911 call was placed immediately after they saw the Gargoyle statue moving its head and wings. Homeowner then proceeded to fire two rounds point-blank from a 357 magnum pistol into the moving Gargoyle statue. Male indicated that he ran away after seeing both bullets bounce out of the front of the statue. Picture of one of the bullet holes included below.

Homeowners sold Gargoyle statue to ranger officer upon agreement that it would be immediately removed from the property. Now, 12 years later, there is an opportunity for one lucky bidder to be part of this Gargoyles' illustrious past & future.

Asking price? $1.6 million. Link has many more pictures. Original link found at boing boing.
