Quite interesting, he even got in a pun worthy of you. Now I just wish I'd ordered this book directly from Ben so I could have gotten it signed, I'd already pre-ordered it from Amazon.

On relistening it struck me that from Ben's remarks the main stream press of Mexico, Puerto Rico, Central & South America is basically the Weekly World News. Straight reporting about chupacabra eggs in the desert, the bland acceptance of ufos & aliens as real, tons of conspiracy stories and anything by Scott Corales - no evidence need apply, make the US media, even Fox, look sane.

More than one listener informed us that the News Papers reporting the Chupacabra story were not tabloids or rags. They were the big newspapers of Puerto Rico. And they also said these are not bad newspapers, but they did carry the story of Tolentino's sighting.

Absolutely brilliant & shocking! I just got through my first skim of Ben's new book & he's done it, he's found the original chupachupa - crazy as it is!

My congrats to him & I can hardly wait to see the response from the rest of the MT fans.
