The Weekly World News is gone -- folded, kicked the bucket, croaked, bought the farm, typed its own toe tag. No more will Elvis and JFK raise their secret love child on a Carribean Island, along with Hitler's preserved brain, found on Mars near where Marilyn Monroe was abducted by aliens.
Sadly, WWN will burp out its last edition this week. Devoted readers will miss such regulars features as Batboy, information on how to tell if one is possessed by demons, and George Bush's showdowns with Satan.
A particular favorite of mine was regular columnist Ed Anger ("My America"). Ed was always pig-biting mad -- madder than a one-legged man at an ass-kicking contest -- about gays, immigrants, sissy-boys, Michael Jackson, dope-fiends, Heather-has-two-mommies -- You name it, if it had a whiff of liberalism about it, Ed was on top of it like an alien eating Elvis' brain.
He'll be missed.
