Re: “Five Cold Corpses in a Barn on the North Side

I love Bad News from the Past, as the proverbial fat child in the parable of the cake. God bless you.

In your database digging, have you ever run across the gland-robbing hysteria that once gripped Chicago and other metropolitan areas? http://fallingandlaughing.com/post/1380638… I've always wondered if these stories were the precursor to the modern organ-theft urban legend.

Re: “The Real American Pie

Delightful and disturbing article! It put me in mind of a BBC documentary from a couple years back, "Edwardian Supersize Me," in which two presenters attempt to put down such horrors as "beef tea." It's hilarious and totally worth trolling the seamy underbelly of the Internet for.
