please continue as you are! Receiving the notification of a new post makes my day!
Thank you sir. But of course these are right up my alley! You know what tickles my fancy Ron, what can I say?
How can we find out who wrote a specific article (for a school project citation)?

Wow, thanks for the heads up – guess I should be flattered they’re reading?
Hi there, just wondered if you guys know about the abandoned hospital in Kempton Park, Gauteng, South Africa, there are many conspiracies and mysteries surrounding its abandonment. Love this site!
Thanks, and appreciate the tip! I’ll look into it. :)
I dont know who you are but you have some of the best articles I have ever read. THANK YOU. I have shared your work on my FB page. Your work and effort is epic! Great job! I have spent many hours going over every one of your articles. Just want you to know that your work is appreciated. Perfect! BTW I am from the Eastern shore of Md and the Hollands island article is how I discovered your work. Great job. I have been to Hollands Islea few times in the 80s-90s and if you look at the satellites (google) you can still see the old baseball field south on the island. Thanks again.. JVC. AWESOME !!! Thank you again.
Wow Jerry, thanks for the feedback! Hearing such glowing praise makes me blush, I’m glad my blog has been entertaining for you. Thanks for stopping by and leaving the comment, the Holland post is one of my favorites – a great story with a sad ending. It was a pleasure to research and write that one. I appreciate you sharing the stories as well. Take care!
Thanks very interesting blog!

I would like to use one of your articles for my study, but how can I cite the text? Because I can’t find the author. It is about project mkultra at: http://sometimes-interesting.com/2013/03/13/project-mkultra/
If you could answer me, that would be wonderful. And by the way, you have incredible materials.

Just read with great interest the article regarding Hart Island [Sept. 20, 2014] – “Buried from the public: Hart Island, New York”. First, I’m thrilled that at long last the Island is receiving recognition and steps are being taken for its resurrection – I thank you for your in-depth reporting. Second, and most disturbing to me: why is it no one from the press wants to speak to me regarding Hart Island and my connection, or worse yet, why is it no one knows the name John S. Turner, my brother, an Honorably Discharged Air Force Veteran whose untimely and suspicous death, and hasty burial on Hart Island, served as the nudge for City Council Officials to explore Hart Island for the first time in 20 years, some Members who had never even heard of the Island.? After all, it was my dogged pursuit of Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley, and our visit to Hart Island in November 2011, that lit the fire under her to bring change for the Island. My beloved brother, John, who’s been buried there since 1972, was the reason for my persistence and if it weren’t for his story, Councilwoman Crowley would not have been so moved to do something. And still my brother, or his story, is nowhere to be read. And since when is the media [apparently]dictated by one person? I am not a person with clout nor do I have a recognizable “name”, I don’t know the right people, I can’t afford lawyers to represent me or John’s memory. I’m just a sister of a brother who did not deserve to go out the way he did and does not deserve to be continously ignored. It was his story, told through me, that commanded a meeting with City Council members in November 2011, as well as with Department of Corrections personnel, including Riker’s Warden Gregory McLaughlin. And why is it that the DOC is not being held accountable for losing my brother – shoddy record keeping took care of that – so there is no way I can even have a bone so I may give him a proper military burial? There are many many stories of the Island and its inhabitants, and there ARE those who are fighting for the Island, for their loved one, and it has nothing to do with record keeping. It has to do with human decency, respect and NYC history. Where are those stories? Breaks my heart a million times over that no one knows about my brother John and what HE, alone, did for this Island – his final unchosen resting place – thus far. Thank you for your time.
Julie, thanks for the comment. I certainly understand your concerns and frustrations with the search for your brother and his apparent lack of legacy within the context of that story. Our post about Hart Island was a historical account of the island, not meant to be a comprehensive biography of the battle with NYC. In that regard, there is a lot of information I “left out” in that issue. That is another story unto itself and something others have covered exhaustively already on the Internet.
But I wish you luck on your search and will leave your comments up for others searching on the topic to uncover. I hope you find peace on the matter with your brother John, good luck. Thanks for stopping by.
