  •  My grandfather took a photo (6+ / 0-)

    of cannibals cooking in Hawaii 80 to 90 years ago.  And in Eastern Kenya and Uganda cannibalism was practiced about 45 years ago, if not more recently.  I met someone who witnessed it in Kenya.

      I'm no expert but I doubt cannibals were at work in 1910 Hawaii plus allowing tourists to film them seems a bit suspect.

      America could have chosen to be the worlds doctor, or grocer. We choose instead to be her policeman. pity

        He was a Marine Corps Officer, as straight an arrow as you'll meet, who was stationed on every corner of the globe over his career, from Peking's Forbidden City to the White House.  When he he said "Cannibals," they were cannibals.  To give an idea of the man, my grandfather used to say that he never gave an order to a Marine and emphasized it with the Hollywood, "And that's an order."  Because in his line of work, as he said, "Everything I say is an order."  I have the cannibals photo somewhere.  He also took photos of torture victims and atrocities committed in China early in the last century, which I also have.

        Dismissed.
