Is this Bush's secret bunker?

Guardian Unlimited | Special reports:
"Mount Weather is not hard to find. From the White House, we take Route 66 west until it meets Highway 50. Fifty miles later, we turn off on Route 601, a small two-lane rural feeder that snakes up a ridge. That road seems to be going nowhere until suddenly, at the crest, we come into a clearing, bounded by two lines of tall, shiny, razor-wired fencing, marked with faded signs that say: "US Property. No Trespassing." Behind sits a grouping of white aluminium sheds and a few cars.
[ . . . ]
Residents on the mountain did not need to read the newspapers to discern that something was going on there. Joe Davitt, a retired civil servant who lives in a small A-frame house a mile or so away, told me that on September 11 2001 his wife was returning home from Florida. At the bottom of the hill, he says, she was stopped by state troopers, who asked for identification. At the facility itself, he says, 'The Mount Weather guards were not only armed, they had their guns in firing position.' John Staelin, a member of the Clarke County Board of Supervisors, says that on September 11, the county's 911 line received a call from an agitated local woman. 'She said, 'I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, but the whole mountain opened up and Air Force One flew in and it closed right up. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes.' So they said, 'Yes, ma'am.' '"

Ive noticed that many events and media reports seem to seize the interest of both of us almost simultaneously. Often you post stuff I almost seized upon myself at the exact same time. So Im betting that my posting of Jamal's interview with McGovern crossed your mind too, in which case I beat you to the punch. Am I right or am I whacky?

BTW...I passed the link to the article to a cool insider that usually knows a few iconoclastic things about this and that. Here's an excerpt of what I got back:

Mt. Weather is -- as the article says -- not a big secret.

I was going to mention the December 1974 plane crash there. But the article beat me to it. Stephen Colbert, the political comedy guy, lost one or both parents in that crash.

Also from what I have heard, Cheney, contrary to the article, did not go to Mt. Weather on 9-11, but was up in Maryland near the Penn. border. Near Camp David.

I had to laugh about the wacky woman who claimed that she saw with her own eyes the mountain open up and AF1 fly in. No way.

Also the provincialism of the residents of the mountain was pretty laughable.

"Martoonies?" What is this, the 1950's?

And they are all spooked up. LMAO.

I'll take door number three - you're both right and whacky. And just how does one spell whacky? Wacky?

I mean, really. You are a meatball!

-----------------------

I just read both parts of the McGovern interview -- I'd seen it but not read it until now -- and now I feel even queasier than I did before.

-----------------------

as to that wacky woman, well, how wacky is too wacky? The stuff I read on the net seems to get more bizarre every day.

Speaking of bizarre, to you ever read Rigorous Intuition?

http://rigint.blogspot.com/

The stuff on there seems to come right out of the Bizarro World of the 50–60s DC comics, if you remember that.

By the way, I really appreciate you checking in here. Often I get the feeling that the only person who reads this stuff besides me is my girlfriend. I use my blog as an auxiliary brain, to give me a silicon memory to keep all these crazy things filed away, and on the off chance that someone else might stumble upon it and get something out of it. Good to see another human here.

Well that's how I sorta use mine too, the blog that is.

Sure, rigorous is a fun read...quality quirk - a cool and novel rizomatic slice through the old pie, providing an interesting narrative angle on much of the same old, same old. And I suspect he spends more than 15 minutes a day rolling his meatballs...and proofing them. Gotta hand it to the canuck.

I read lots of webby junk not blogrolled/bookmarked on my blog. My list of links isn't correlated in any way with what I agree with or always rely on - far from it. It instead fills other dubious agendas.

Well, if you want lots of traffic, do as the professor at Burkeanreflections.blogspot.com does - sign up to traffic generators where you earn hits by surfing other blogs. Nobody looks at the blogs they surf, they just zombie past them to get points. I think he has in the vicinity of 300 hits a day, but if u check out his referral list u'll see that near all (97%)his hits come from zombie clickers from these services.

The rest of the hits come from himself. He must zombie surf himself for 3 hours a day to generate all those hits. It's insane...and he claims he's a professor. Go figure!
