Is there room in the Para/Crypto/Fortean world for a gun-toting, paranoid, bipolar, opinionated bastard? A lonely romantic in search of his lost soul? A knight, Samurai, gunslinger, born in the wrong century? A self-destructive, doom-driven survivor seeking redemption? A heavy drinking gonzo outlaw cryptozoologist whose ego is exceeded only by his libido?
No, there isn't. That's why I'm here...

The Jinn Made Me Do It! (no, not the GIN!)

Here's a story from the Arab Emirates detailing the case and investigation surrounding a judge accused of corruption. It seems the judge played the Jinn card, claiming that he was under the influence of one-o-these entities. And it seems he's being taken quite seriously, complete with a court appointed Jinn-talker and an exorcist.
Can't help but wonder if this case will set a legal precedent for future cases. Will the Jinn defense actually work? And more importantly, would it fly in US courts??

I'm amazed that in this conservative country things like the devil or demons aren't successful defenses, but hell there was a Kennedy who went for a little nighttime car wreck and blamed it on his Ambien, so anything is possible. Hope you have a wonderful Halloween, spooky and creepy, chilly and atmospheric.

Tonight, if you hear something scratching around your window, something making the dogs in the area bark, hear a little faint giggle, it's just me coming for a visit on All Hallow's Eve.

Careful, Dale! You know us Monster Hunters must remain on High Alert on Halloween! It's the perfect time for the creatures to pull a sneak attack on our reality! It's a thankless job, but we all haveta make sacrifices.
