Quote of the Week

"The great advances of civilization, whether in architecture or painting, in
science and literature, in industry or agriculture, have never come from
centralized government."

-- Milton Friedman

Rant of the Week: "Deni All Knolge"

Every week we pick the wackiest, scariest, nastiest or funniest rant from the
hundreds of letters received by us here at ParaScope headquarters, and
present it to you as our Rant of the Week. This week, "Matt" leaves his
spell-checker at home as he dashes off a plea for details on any sightings of
the infamous Men In Black. But what does this have to do with Oprah!? Enjoy.

"Listen carefully. I wish to know of any men in black sightings around the
world. If it has to do with MIB give me the scope.You can contact me at AOL.

"That is all.

"Please deni all knolge of this message."

Things That Go Bump Online

ParaScope is working on a killer line-up of creepy tales and spooky stories,
just in time for Halloween. Actually, we're a bit early, but that gives you a
chance to get the jump on your friends and read up on everything from the
Ghosts of New Orleans to the mysterious case of the Spastic Elastic Gastric
Plastic. No one knows the weird, the scary and the just plain creepy like
your old pals and ParaScope, so check back every day from now through
Halloween for the latest stories, scoops and insights into one of our
favorite holidays.


CIA InTERRORgation Manual Available in Print

"Resistant sources" can be broken with carefully chosen, concentrated
psychological forces, according to the CIA's 1963 guidebook on interrogation.
The "KUBARK Counterintelligence Interrogation" manual, declassified in
January 1997 after the Baltimore Sun threatened to launch a Freedom of
Information Act lawsuit, offers an inside view of the agency's hostile
interrogation strategies -- methods for inducing mental and physical agony.
Throughout the manual, the CIA cites its covertly funded mind control
research to explain the optimal means of making people talk.

ParaScope was the first news service to make this important document
available on the Internet, and now ParaScope is the first publisher to make
the KUBARK manual available in print to the general public. Serious students
and critics of the CIA will want a hard copy of this document for their
libraries, and ParaScope's meticulously-proofed verbatim transcript is a
bargain at $5.95.

To order send $5.95 to:
