And on this day in 1997, 39 members of the Heaven’s Gate cult were found dead in a house in a suburb of San Diego.  Adherents believed that by committing suicide they would be freed of their bodily “containers” and would enter an alien spacecraft hiding behind the comet Hale Bopp.  I will always remember these folks for their belief in and commitment to their vision, no matter how fucking crazy … do you remember Marshall Applewhite and his Nike shoes?
