I didn't get my FT this month! :( Apparently it was sent out as usual and went astray somewhere.

Has anyone finished with their latest issue and would be willing to pass it on to a bereft fellow reader? I'll pay you back for postage if it's over £1.

Exorcism: Irish family flee house after son flung from bed

Story from Belfast Telegraph:

A exorcism will be performed on a council house in the Republic of Ireland tonight, amid claims that it is haunted. The occupants of the house at Hollyhill on Cork's northside have fled, saying it is occupied by an evil spirit that is determined to keep them out.

Laura Burke, her partner Ritchie and her son Kyle are terrified to remain after a spate of bizarre occurrences over recent weeks. The young couple moved into the house last August.

Today, special prayers will be said at the house to placate the spirit and a 'New Age' shaman (spirit worker) will perform an exorcism.

Laura said holy pictures were routinely being knocked from the wall, screams were heard in the dead of night and their son was flung from his bed. The family received their greatest shock when they spotted what they described as "glowing orbs" hovering in mid-air in certain rooms in the house.

"It's an evil spirit -- I don't believe it means us well," said Laura.

"We tried saying prayers in the house and the next thing all you hear is banging furniture upstairs or clothes being fired out of wardrobes."

Clairvoyant John O'Reilly was invited to inspect the house. He said he immediately felt "a presence", adding: "There is someone here -- someone who is very angry. I get (a feeling) of a younger man who would have hung himself."

However, locals remain dubious about the haunting claims and said nobody recalls previous incidents at the house or any tragedy fitting the descriptions being cited.

I have loved the paranormal for years. Has anyone out there read Alien Animals by Janet and Colin Bord? It's my favorite book of all time. I've read it over thirty times. It's the greatest book ever!

Baby ogopogo?

X-Posted so sorry if you see this twice. I'm just hoping someone has further information on this:

Hello all,

I've been very interested in Cryptozoology for a long time, and have always kept an open mind as to what's out there. I actually live about 20 minutes from Loch Ness, which is quite apt for me! Anyway, has anyone seen this article about a possible baby ogopogo? I'm not sure what to make of it, I can't find much out about it, and what little information there is, is quite vague.

Tunguska Revisited

Sandia supercomputers offer new explanation of Tunguska disaster. Smaller asteroids may pose greater danger than previously believed

"The asteroid that caused the extensive damage was much smaller than we had thought,” says Sandia principal investigator Mark Boslough of the impact that occurred June 30, 1908. “That such a small object can do this kind of destruction suggests that smaller asteroids are something to consider. Their smaller size indicates such collisions are not as improbable as we had believed."
