Inbreeding among polygamists along the Arizona-Utah border is producing a caste of severely retarded and deformed children.
Lowlight: The ultimate goal of the breeding program, Wyler says, is to create the perfect race.
"Remember how Hitler was trying to breed a perfect race?" he says. "Warren Jeffs is also trying to breed a perfect race."
It's not working. Meet Warren Jeffs, monumental douchebag.

A meeting of civilisations: The mystery of China's celtic mummies
The discovery of European corpses thousands of miles away suggests a hitherto unknown connection between East and West in the Bronze Age.
Great story: At their peak, around 300BC, the influence of the Celts stretched from Ireland in the west to the south of Spain and across to Italy's Po Valley, and probably extended to parts of Poland and Ukraine and the central plain of Turkey in the east. These mummies seem to suggest, however, that the Celts penetrated well into central Asia, nearly making it as far as Tibet.
A Higher Power
James Baker puts Bush's Iraq policy into rehab. By Robert Dreyfuss."Baker is primarily motivated by his desire to avoid a war at home--that things will fall apart not on the battlefield but at home. So he wants a ceasefire in American politics," a member of one of the commission's working groups told me. Specifically, he said, if the Democrats win back one or both houses of Congress in November, they would unleash a series of investigative hearings on Iraq, the war on terrorism, and civil liberties that could fatally weaken the administration and remove the last props of political support for the war, setting the stage for a potential Republican electoral disaster in 2008. "I guess there are people in the [Republican] party, on the Hill and in the White House, who see a political train wreck coming, and they've called in Baker to try to reroute the train."

Global warming may be an accelerated version of ancient heat wave
It was one of the greatest calamities of all time: Something turned up the Earth's thermostat, touching off a monstrous heat wave that killed many animals and drove others far from their homes to seek cooler climes.
This catastrophe occurred 55 million years ago, after the age of the dinosaurs and long before humans appeared. But scientists warn that today's global warming means that it could be happening again.

There's a lot of interest in Connecticut politics these days. Democratic nominee Ned Lamont is playing the usurper to Senator and former presidential candidate Joe Lieberman, who is now running as an independent. Meanwhile, the Republicans have nominated Alan Schlesinger, a former mayor of the City of Derby and a six-term State Representative. Despite the nomination of his party, Schlesinger has had little support from Republican power brokers. He seems to be merely a placeholder. President Bush has refused to endorse his candidacy as have other GOP bigwigs. Schlesinger has gambled extensively in the past
and lost many thousands of dollars. On the surface this might make him a liability, but that doesn't seem to have hurt William Bennett's
standing among the party faithful. Schlesinger's web site
is amateurish and the Latest News links on the front page haven't been updated since April. What kind of candidate is he?
This may be a good time to look at the last Connecticut Republican Party nominee for Joe Lieberman's senate seat, Philip Giordano
Phil Giordano was an up and coming GOP hotshot. Young, handsome, and an ex-Marine, Giordano seemed to have the entire package. He'd served as a state representative and was serving his third term as mayor of Waterbury. On paper, Phil probably looked like a good candidate. Unfortunately, Waterbury had a corruption problem and the FBI was investigating. In the course of their investigation, the Feds recorded some of Giordano's phone calls. What they heard on those recordings chilled the blood.
It seemed the married Giordano had a girlfriend on the side. As political liabilities go, that one's probable not fatal. Look at Bill Clinton. But Giordano's girlfriend was a prostitute with a young daughter and niece - age 8 and 11 - and soon investigators overheard the depth of Giordano's depravity.
"I want one of the little girls."
Giordano juggled his secret life smoothly, glibly moving between pervert and politician. Here's Giordano making arrangements with his girlfriend (called "Doe" here) to rape the children: Giordano: "Hang on, I gotta go. Hang on, I gotta go, I gotta go."
Lauren: "Hi. Mayor Giordano?"
Lauren: "Hi, my name is Lauren. I'm Bill Hanson's assistant at the Department of Education. How are you?"
Today, Phil Giordano sits in prison serving a 37 year sentence for violating the civil rights of his prostitute girlfriend's young charges - girls he sexually abused, in some cases, in his office while mayor.
He recently claimed he was owed money for unused vacation and sick days.
But Phil Giordano's "sick days" are over.
I'm not implying that Schlesinger has the disease that infected Giordano, but it does seem odd that Connecticut Republicans have shown very little interest in fielding a strong candidate to take away Lieberman's senate seat. I wonder why?

The condition leads someone to construct a false reality — sometimes to the extent that they begin to believe their own lies.

They alleged these treasures were moved from England to Jamestown to Williamsburg.
The Baconists believe that Bacon was the illegitimate son of Queen Elizabeth I of England and thus the rightful heir to the English throne. They also believe he faked his death in 1626 and actually died in 1684, at the age of 123.

. Lots of new info here.In 1984, when Karr was 19, he married a local girl, Quientana Shotts, who was 13 at the time, county court records show. Shotts filed for an annulment the following year, complaining that she was "fearful for her life and safety." In a response filed with the court, Karr contested Shotts' age, saying she was in fact 14.
In 1989, Karr remarried, this time to Lara Knutson. She was 16 at the time. Their twin daughters died the day they were born on Sept. 1, 1989. The girls, Angel and Innocence Karr, are buried in the cemetery of a rural church in a family plot.
