  1. In the interest of total accuracy, 909 people were not found dead on November 18, 1978. Guyanese authorities didn't arrive on the scene until the day after the massacre; they discovered only 405 bodies, the majority of them in or immediately around the pavilion. (Dr. Leslie Mootoo–Guyana's chief pathologist–conducted as thorough an examination of the bodies as circumstances permitted, and found that most of the adults had not died willingly: they were forcibly injected with cyanide.) The whereabouts of Jones's other followers constituted a major mystery in the early stages of the investigation. Meanwhile, it took FOUR DAYS for U.S. military forces to straggle into Jonestown…and after their inexplicably belated arrival, the body count mysteriously rose over a period of days until it reached 909. Where had the other bodies been? Beneath the original 405, said U.S. officials. The first photographs of the scene (taken by Frank Johnston of the Washington Post) clearly indicate that there were not piles of bodies; nevertheless, this was the only explanation offered for the discrepancy.

    Facts count.

  2. What's really sad is that people are so vulnerable, helpless and lost that they can buy into "Jonestown", named after a man that calls himself God and then expect to fed, housed and clothed and live happily ever after with practical strangers.
