GRIM REAPER GETS OUT OF DODGE So say worldwide headlines about reports that no deaths have occurred in a small Oklahoma town over an extended period. But what's the story behind the miracle? The town's Mayor claims an earthquake caused by oil company fracking released a life-altering substance into the town's water supply. A preacher of oldtime religion proclaims that biblically foretold End Times are at hand. Also in play are strong psychic currents of mind-over-mortality positive thinking. * A yoga studio recently introduced "OM" to the community as a means to transcend the limitations of ordinary life and create a pervasive state of nirvana. * Shortly before disappearance of death in town, a newly opened "boot camp" for washed out business executives started promoting a gung-ho spirit of survivalism. * The local newspaper's freshly adopted practice of reporting only good news and publishing lots of good advice may have produced a self-fulfilling "gospel." Or it could be, according to one of multiple suggested "conspiracy theories," that half-dead town residents are walking around above ground as only half-alive "zombies." A young local reporter ---- Henryetta rides again! ---- tries to make sense of all this strangeness depicted by noted author, Simon Plaster, and maybe win for herself one of those Pulitzer Prizes. EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT!
