History of the Tea Party movement

Although greatly simplified, this is a bit more accurate and even-handed, for better for or worse, than some of the vitriol that's been going around:

Werewolf Sighting May Have Been Coyotes

The full Moon last week was on Tuesday, so a report of a werewolf near Kendallville early Sunday was most likely false.

In fairness, the witness calling in a strange animal told police it might be a coyote -- or a werewolf. The caller reported at 2:43 a.m. that an animal was running loose near dog kennels on Fred's Court, near the west edge of the city, and added that it might be one of the two.

Kendallville police checked the area and saw what they believed were coyotes, which took off running when they arrived. Just in case, the next full Moon is on September 23.
