Moment of Silence

A moment of silence, please. The Weekly World News is folding.

For years, Hex wanted to write for this fine, fine publication. I remember when my tabloid-addicted mom finally stopped buying it, for not being up to her celebrity gossip standards. Meanwhile, it got weirder and weirder.

"One day -- Lind swears this is true -- Eddie Clontz got a call from an irate FBI agent complaining that the bureau's switchboard was swamped with calls demanding that they free Bat Boy."

My understanding was that the WWN was folding its print edition, but would remain a powerful force for weirdness online via their website (weeklyworldnews.com).
