The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

I wouldn't blame Art Bell for that.

He reported the facts as related to him by the Heaven's Gate folks, not the other way round.

"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

Vincent D’Onofrio gets first full night of sleep in 31 years

D’Onofrio, famous for playing the pathetic Marine recruit nicknamed Private Pyle, has long been impacted by Ermey’s historic portrayal of the brutal Gunnery Sgt. Hartman in the film.

“I developed a bad case of Hollywood PTSD,” D’Onofrio told reporters while cleaning the prop rifle he acquired over three decades ago. “To make matters worse, the Hollywood VA Hospital has refused to treat my condition.”

...

“I wasn’t sure Ermey ever forgave me for, you know, killing him in the movie,” he said. “Just to be sure, I was waking up every thirty minutes or so to check he wasn’t coming for me.”
