Aliens Kill Weekly World News!

August 05, 2007|SWATI PANDEY

After 28 years, the last print edition of the Weekly World News will appear Aug. 27. The paper's coverage combined the flat-out strange (mer-people, space aliens, deities) with a touch of politics (as in "Mother Nature Endorses Al Gore for President"). It provided endless fodder for UFO abductees, readers who believe JFK and Elvis are still alive and every fan of weird. Below, Opinion selects a few of its favorite Weekly World News headlines.
