Odds & Ends

Dateline: Bangladesh—Police in the northern part of the country say they have arrested dozens of swindlers who conned people out of money by calling them on mobile phones and claiming to be genies with supernatural powers. “It has become an epidemic,” Farhad bin Imrul Kayes, police chief of Gobindaganj province told Agence France-Presse. “In the last three months alone we have arrested 24 of these so-called ‘Kings of Genies,’ some of whom have even become rich in just a year.” According to Kayes, the scammers would gather personal information about their victims beforehand, then call them and speak “in a tone similar to Arabic.” Claiming to be genies who had descended from the sky, the scammers would demand money, threatening a family tragedy if the victims did not pay up. In addition to rattling off detailed family information, the callers would recite passages from the Quran. Police in Gobindaganj used phone taps to catch the scammers after receiving numerous complaints.

Letters

[Re: Feature, "Somewhere Under the Rainbow," July 16-22] I've decided that I just have to write to you because I went to the Rainbow Gathering for the first time ever after hearing of it for many years. As a 60-year-old grandmother, I had a fantastic time. The location was spectacular, the weather was wonderful (I'm so grateful that we had some rain to keep things cool), I barely saw an insect, saw no dog poop and encountered many friendly people who were very generous of spirit. I fail to see anything wrong with the absence of alcohol or hard drugs. Many people who in their lives do much work toward sustainability of our planet, peace and health for all people were in attendance. I think it is a great thing to take some time out, be in the forest, appreciate the beauty of the Earth. People were intentionally greeting and respecting the people they encountered and offering hope for peace.
