The Black Suits Are Coming to Get Me

Okay, this is getting pretty disturbing. Yesterday, the expensive-suit people came back – barged in, really – and dug through all of my roommate’s books again, and all of hew new notes. They mostly missed my stuff because I told them – the truth! – that I was working on a paper on monasteries and similar architectural artifacts.
But now I’m reading books in my closet, in the back room of the library, in the crappy cafe nobody uses. And those monks are pretty frighting. Maybe more so than expensive-suit people.



EDITORIAL: The world is suddenly awash in news of “portals” and “strange occurrences.” It’s like every time I open the newspaper, there’s something else that looks like the Weekly World News.
Get it together, people. There’s conflict and chaos in the Middle East. There’s financial troubles everywhere. Our own house is none too clean and we can’t get Congress to agree on mashed potatoes or fries for lunch, much less anything important.
There’s some weird stuff in the air? Get over it. There’s always going to be some weird stuff in the air – especially if you’re sniffing the “weird stuff.” There are a lot more important things to worry about.



JEFFERSON, Texas(AP): In the county seat of Marion County, Texas, all seven hundred three men between the ages of sixteen and forty years old suddenly walked out of town this evening, each of them wearing a glassy smile and appearing to not know where they are.
One man was injured as he walked into oncoming traffic, then further injured as he attempted to get up with a broken leg and continue to walk. No other damage has been reported.



CAIRO, Eqypt: People continue to fall dead near the so-called “portal to the underworld.” This dome-shaped golden light, in the center of Tahrir square, seems to lead to the pyramids. However, any person who steps into the dome has vanished, so the only reports that exist are those from drone-like bomb-sniffing robots.
As days go on, the fatal radius around the dome-portal appears to be growing; at the current rate of growth, it is estimated that within a week, the entire square will be fatal to stand within or even near.
Egyptian authorities could not be reached for comment.



RIGA, Latvia(AP): in the rural areas around Riga, the capital and largest city of Latvia, people report hearing voices coming from the power lines.
Various people – in various areas around the region – report various different types of voice, low, high, loud, very soft, and various phrases, but none of the phrases are in Latvian or, indeed, in any recognized human language. A team of linguists is currently working with the farmers to decipher the words.
