NEW YORK: Iconic world sites from the New York Stock Exchange to the Church of the Nativity reopened their doors on Tuesday from the coronavirus pandemic, but new alarm bells rang in Latin America over a spike of infections. In a symbolic return of a high altar of capitalism, the New York Stock Exchange -- which had gone exclusively virtual for two months -- allowed a limited number of traders to return to the trading floor, wearing masks to reduce the risk of infection.

(George Klineman is a freelance reporter, a former student activist whose parents were born in America. He got wind of the story through the man who was to become his father-in-law, David Conn. Conn was an elder in the Disciples of Christ, a loose confederation of churches that included the Peoples Temple. In the early Seventies, Conn heard strange rumors about Jones: guns at the Redwood Valley temple, beatings, fear in those who left the Peoples Temple. Klineman interviewed temple defectors and took the information to one of his sources in the Treasury Department, which encompasses the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Klineman had simply asked his source if he knew anything about a northern California religious organization that was arming itself.) … [Read more...] about In the Valley of the Shadow of Death: Guyana After the Jonestown Massacre
