This wasn't tied to a specific date of doom although in their minds, doomsday had sure come. I just wanted to add the Jonestown Massacre. It doesn't seem right without it for examples of deadly outcomes to very extremist views and nuttiness.
918 people died in that event. 909 in the Jonestown compound itself with 907 of those being from self ingested Cyanide poisoning. Kool-Aid, as it
happened. Another group had been killed at the Airstrip nearby before the mass suicide. Among those lost at the Airstrip were Congressman Leo Ryan
(California), cameraman Bob Brown, photographer Greg Robinson, NBC reporter Don Harris and Temple defector Patricia Parks.
Here is my sincere hope that there isn't another 3 digit number and brief description of tragic ends to memorialize tomorrow. I hope everyone who is
here tonight, around the world, is here Saturday to chuckle about what was feared and wonder about what might have been...if something had happened.
