Got an address for Cthulhu and the city of R'lyeh? Getting hungry after reading that menu.....
Somewhere between Alpha Centauri and Sacramento there's a small, out-of-the-way gas station. There's the signpost up ahead: "Welcome to Cthulhu Mythos."

P.S. If you were stationed in the Pacific in the early '80s you should get the reference.

Harry Harrington is 6’7″ and weighs over 300 lbs. He’s a notorious gay sex predator who has served time in jail for numerous sexual assaults. An aggressive and predatory offender, he’s not the kind of man you want to annoy. But that’s just what Garfield Morgan, 54, and his 36 year old accomplice friend Kim Gorton did when they broke into his home.

Harrington, known as ‘The Wolfman‘, easily overpowered the men, tied them up and assaulted them for five full days. Police only intervened after a neighbor heard the men’s cries for help and called them.

I saw a long documentary on these machines and their heyday in the California deserts, and as I recall the .gov just threw them away back in the day. These guys were hunting them up in scrap yards. I'm pretty sure they don't do that anymore, and it would be a lot more trouble to try and get your hands on a modern fuel tank.

The woman responsible for the publication of a controversial map of all gun permit holders in Rockland and Westchester counties resigned from the Journal News the last week of February, effective March 6.

The publication of the map created a national sensation in late 2012 and early 2013, mostly in opposition to the Journal News’ decision.

Locally, the map, published in the wake of the Newtown, Connecticut shootings, led to an outcry from thousands of law abiding citizens listed thereon and galvanized a strong opposition. Thousands of subscribers reportedly left the newspaper, most never to return. Law enforcement was particularly vocal in opposition to the map, as many cops and first responders’ addresses were listed.

Though it is unlikely Hasson was involved in the editorial decision to publish the map, she defended it for weeks, until finally taking it down following consecutive thefts of guns from houses on the map.

The Rockland County Times led coverage of the gun map controversy, gaining national and international exposure, particularly for the scoop that the Journal News had hired gun-toting guards to protect against blowback from the article, in spite of their anti-gun stance.

Hasson had been publisher of Lohud.com and The Journal News. She has left Gannett and moved on to GateHouse Media owned-Providence Journal in Rhode Island. The Journal News said George Troyano, former vice president sales/advertising for The Journal News Media Group, is now serving as interim publisher.

Coverage of the controversy remains available at: https://www.rocklandtimes.com/category/special-2/journal-news-controversy/


So, now she is in the cesspool known as Rhode Island. As RI escapee, I know that they both deserve each other.
