The Gawker guide to the Illuminati

I've remarked  more than once about the recent upsurge in interest in the Illuminati. The lively tabloid/gossip site Gawker, also taking note of the phenomena, has produced an amusing "Comprehensive Guide to the Illuminati." Kudos to Gawker for dividing the article into two sections, one for believers (and for people who enjoy seeing believers condescended to) and one for skeptics. Mike Read, in his otherwise commendable piece, neglected to mention ILLUMINATUS!, but I noticed that was set right by the commentators.

Tangential, or parallel, or maybe even asymptotic: Arthur Goldwag's new book on the history of right wing paranoid groups in Unistat has a quote from RAW on Weishaupt, the one from Cosmic Trigger, Vol 1, on page 4, starting with, "It has been claimed that Dr. Weishaupt [...] can't even get a plumber on weekends."

my kids "know" that's Weishaupt on the dollar. :-)
