I can't believe they still do this...

So, seriously, what's the deal with this? There's a whole conspiracy theory wrapped around the Boho Grove, and there's even an activist organization in the neighboring town that opposes them every year. Evil...or just really, really creepy? You be the judge!

I'm pretty sure that Bohemian Grove is what the people who go there say it is: a retreat for white men of vast wealth and influence. The ceremonies are for real, but I would guess that no member of the Bohemian Club takes them any more seriously than college kids take the nonsense attending secret societies in Universities (probably less). On that basis, I don't know if I'd even call it creepy (though God knows it seems that way from this vantagepoint)

However, any place where Henry Kissinger is considered the VIP of VIPs is a place that countenances evil by default. I'm far from being one of those yo-yos who thinks everything hideous on this planet is the result of a Rockefeller/Kissinger conspiracy, but that porcine mass-murderer has been the ghost in the machinery of enough atrocities over the last 40 years to keep the idea alive with some justification (I mean, the blood on his hands from the East Timor massacres of the 1970s alone is enough to drown in).
