Before going at length about the evils of religion, and religious believers (implied), I would remind readers that Pol Pot, Joseph Stalin, Vladimir Lenin, Mao Zedong and Adolf Hitler—who collectively killed about 30 million people—were atheists and pure evil.

If [MormonLeaks founder Ryan McKnight] doesn't believe in [Mormonism], why doesn't he just move on with his life like a normal person? I did.

Private Eye, July 5, "Headlines Matter"
Dear John, (now there is a headline!)

I'm writing to say how much I appreciate the Private Eye slot in CW. Very much like the addition of Aspen Perry's new eccentric voice, yours and all the other contributors. I do miss Stephen Dark's articles, though.

I do literally relate to Invasion of the Body Snatchers, as my father was production design on the original version of the film and I was on the set a number of times. In fact, this is actually a completely true headline: "Teenager Makes the First 'Pod.''' And there is a story that isn't revealed in the headline, nor herein.

Dine, July 5, "Get These Cookies!"
The homemade chocolate chip cookies sold by a boy in the 900 South Caffé Expresso driveway are really hard to beat. He sets up a card table there most Saturdays.

You missed the best in town by not mentioning Goodly Cookies.

Online news post, July 6, More than 100 immigrants and refugees are naturalized
Hey, liberal filth paper! It's ILLEGAL immigration at the border that matters, not legal immigrants or war-torn refugees becoming U.S. Citizens. That's great, but illegal filth is not!
