Mack White – Mack is a comic book artist, illustrator, writer, and parapolitical researcher who lives in Austin, Texas. White’s first professionally published story was “El Bandito Muerto” which appeared in Rip Off Comix in 1990. Throughout the 1990s, he contributed to a number of comics anthologies (most notably Zero Zero, Buzz and Snake Eyes), magazines (Details, Heavy Metal, Boing-Boing, and others), and newspapers (Austin Chronicle and Austin American-Statesman). 


His books include: The Mutant Book of the Dead (Starhead, 1994); Villa of the Mysteries 1, 2, and 3 (Fantagraphics, 1996-98); and The Bush Junta (Fantagraphics, 2004), a political comics anthology which he co-edited with Gary Groth. White’s artwork has also been featured in many art shows, including the Comics on the Verge show which was presented by the Yerba Buena Arts Center in 2003 and later toured galleries and universities throughout the United States. White has been interviewed in many magazines, including Rolling Stone and The Comics Journal, and in the 1995 documentary Day 51: The True Story of Waco. 

He has illustrated numerous books, including Raw Deal (Blast Books) and The Last Renegade (Trails End Press), as well as album covers, such as The Cactus Brothers (Capitol Records). Quoting White’s Wikipedia entry: “White’s early stories were bizarre, darkly humorous, and dealt with metaphysical themes. In reviewing his work in the Comics on the Verge show, the Baltimore City Paper described his work as combining “an illustrative style reminiscent of serial adventure comic strips with the paranoia of Robert Anton Wilson’s The Illuminatus Trilogy.” Later, his work became more political, the best known examples being “Dead Silence in the Brain: The CIA Assassination of John Lennon” (The Comics Journal Summer Special 2001); “Operation Northwoods” (The Comics Journal Winter Special 2002); “1963,” an autobiographical account of growing up in the Dallas area during the Kennedy assassination, which appeared in Roadstrips (Chronicle Books, 2006); The Bush Junta, in which White and 22 other cartoonists told the history of the George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush presidential administrations in comic strip form…” /

SMiles Lewis – SMiles has had a lifelong interest in all things anomalous. An early age proclivity at recalling his nightly dreams as well as several personal experiences with ESP, precognition and dream switching bolstered his interest in the paranormal. Shortly after high-school he joined the local MUFON chapter in Austin, Texas. He would later become a MUFON State Section Director for that group as well as leader of the local UFO Experiencer Support and Study Group. A lover of books, SMiles collected over 1000 titles before founding his own non-profit Anomaly Archives that serves as the lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute. For over twenty years he has worked with digital audio, video and other bleeding edge internet technologies. He has published his own print journal, edited a local paranormal newspaper, maintained a large network of websites, organized a national UFO conference, spoken to anthropologists about UFOs and parapsychology, hosted both terrestrial and webradio talk shows and has been podcasting since before the phrase existed. All these efforts and more have led radio talk show host Robert Larson to describe Miles as a “Gonzo Alt-Media Proprietor and Informationalist.”

SMiles’ current projects include co-hosting 3 different radio shows a week as part of the 18 unique shows airing daily on his ANOMALY RADIO Network. He is active with several local non-profits which includes his service on the board of directors for the Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies (INACS). He recently launched the new paranormal and parapolitical publication ANOMALY Magazine.

In his day job with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission’s Talking Book Program he manages a volunteer recording studio and audio duplication department and has been a consultant on two digital audio development documents for the Library of Congress’ National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.

I would like to thank you for your show, and in particular even the short show you recently posted. The story you covered about the killing in NYC with the Masonic Sword appeared to be a good and balanced piece of coverage. I’ve been an active Freemason for about 10 years and all too often we get painted with a VERY broad brush anytime something “untoward” occurs. The murder was a tragedy but unfortunately people CAN snap a cog at any time. I read one article where he had just joined a Lodge earlier the same night. An initiation can be a very emotional experience and unfortunately if he were also going through some serious mental issues that intensity and stress may not have helped, .. but a story I read in the NY Post makes it sound as if he merely visited that Lodge.

Your mention of “clandestine” Lodges in NYC is interesting. In most metropolitan areas you’ll have lodges for the “mainstream” lodge (Grand Lodge of the state of NY, in my situation) and often a Prince Hall (Black mainstream) Grand Lodge which both recognize each other as legitimate. In NYC we have about 25 other “jurisdictions” which do not typically recognize anyone and sometimes their teachings and practices can vary QUITE a bit from the mainstream.

Thought you guys might like this:

Al jazeera reports that the Global Commission on Drug Policy has “declared the global “war on drugs” to be a failure, and has urged countries to consider legalising certain drugs, including cannabis, in a bid to undermine organised crime.”

A well written paper on the CIA and the UFO phenomenon is being posted at “JFK and the Majestic Papers: The History of a Hoax” by Seamus Coogan. Appears to be very well researched and I think you will find it of interest as further research which goes beyond “Mirage Men”.

Thanks TMWR … I heard about that TSA oxycotton [sic?] drug ring on the COP-BLOCK podcast but hadn’t seen a news link.
