Greetings, and welcome to The /x/ Files, the weekly news digest for 4chan’s Paranormal board. Every Sunday, we take a quick snapshot of the mysterious world around us and bring it, in an easily readable magazine format, to the board. I am The Editor, the anonymous creator of this idea and collector of the news that will be following below. In the interests of legitimacy, I will be using a secure tripcode to post the thread; once the posts are completed, I will take the tripcode off and return to my anonymity.
Due to an unexpected illness, this will not be a full issue of the magazine. My 65 year old mother came down with pneumonia, and as I’m the closest member of my immediate family, I have to travel out of state to take care of her and my disabled father while she recouperates. Next week’s issue will be even bigger to cover the news I didn’t this week. Apologies to those waiting for this issue, but I’ll just have to catch you up.

Expanded Perspectives: Amelia Earheart: The Truth at Last
On this episode of Expanded Perspectives the guys talk with Mike Campbell about his new book “Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last.” Nearly everything the American public has seen, read and heard in the media for nearly 80 years about the so-called Amelia Earhart mystery is intentionally false or inadvertently misleading. The widely accepted myth that the disappearance of Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan during their ill-fated world-flight attempt in July 1937 is among the greatest aviation mysteries of the 20th century is an abject lie, the result of decades of government propaganda that continues unabated to this day.
