Hacienda owns La Senorita. The dude quoted in both articles is Jeff Leslie.

Oh, that is just beautiful! I ripped into a bunch of the northerners on the 7&4 comments about this! They pulled the ads from here and then ran them in Chicago, I love it!

Well, no, they were run in South Bend (not Chicago) at about the same time as in MI, from what I can gather from the internets. The shiat hit the fan in both areas.

BTW, I had not been to La Senorita's in a couple of years, but since this ad ran and some uptight mutherfarkers said they would boycott La Senorita's, I went there twice just last week. That's right biatches! For every animal you don't eat, I will eat 3!

BigTuna: Vexed Thespian: that is absolutely hilarious, the look in the eyes of that pickle.... hey, anyone remember the luckycharms thread?

Gah, I had just about forgotten it too...

lohphat: Are you counting the kids poisoned unwillingly along with the cultists?

Yes, especially them.


I'm glad I could bring back that memory for at least one farker.

I know where I can find the final recordings, I just can't bring myself to listen to them.

They are bad. The worst part for me was a woman who was rejecting the suicide solution and everyone else talking her down. The lone voice of reason, silenced.

Here's the thing, though: Kool-Aid was in their provisions, and is more popular. May not have been what they used that day, but.... meh.

Must have something to do with the whole split time zone thing. Drives people over the edge.

Christine.

She tried mentioning the "Let's go to Russia" plan that Jones had, yet he was determined to "White Night" the whole bunch.

Perhaps killing Leo Ryan had something to do with it...
