THE MONITOR

newsoftheweird.com

What's the point? -- Don't worry; you won't find any tabloid banter here, just real news that's a little on the weird side. Weathermen quitting their jobs to pursue conspiracy theories regarding Hurricane Katrina; labor unions hiring substitutes to protest for them during a strike; it's all weird, and it's all just a click away.

Monitor What to look for -- You can select "Weird Map," and find weird news from specific areas around the country, read a bio of NOTW's creator, Chuck Shepherd, or read current or archived News of the Weird by clicking on "The News." If you really want to explore the depths of Weirddom, check out Chuck's cumulative register of accused and convicted murderers with the middle name of Wayne.
