Guyana Tragedy Revisited

It’s been 30 years since a great tragedy occurred in Guyana. In 1978 918 followers of Jim Jones died after swallowing a Kool-aid which contained cyanide. The event was the origin of the term “drinking the Kool-aid” to describe close adherents of dogma.

Both MSNBC and CNN are revisiting the subject 30 years later.

Tonight CNN is launching “Escape from Jonestown” where they look at what happened in Guyana with the ‘People’s Temple.’

That’s quite a bit of attention on an extremely disturbing moment in religious history.
