The US has a rather sordid history when it comes to witch hunts. From actual witch hunts to figurative ones, this week we take a look at the granddaddy of political witch hunts: the House Un-American Committee’s communist trials of the 1950s, and the offshoot of Joseph McCarthey. In the news: “The Far Side” is back!, updates on the “sonic attack” in Cuba, Home Depot and Lowe’s are stealing your face, man sues sperm clinic after fathering 17 children, Portland’s David Walker gets picked up by Hollywood, and more. Enjoy!
