    Witness to Jonestown on MSNBC

    I'm wondering if anybody else watched this on MSNBC Sunday night.

    Very well-done, and also VERY creepy and eerie, especially since it's all true.

    I was only four years old when it happened, and being a history buff I appreciated (I can't use the word enjoyed) being able to learn more about it.

    I’m not sure if many people know it but that is where the figure of speech, “Drinking the Kool-Aid” originated. I saw a made for TV movie about this tragedy when I was a little kid and the thought of it still scares me to death.

    MSNBC does a good job with a lot of their documentaries. I enjoy the Lockup series. The Anamosa and Fort Madison shows were interesting...

    The hardest part to fathom are the innocent children that were forced into this.

    I have no idea what you are talking about,maybe I am too young to know about this, but I am guessing it involved a cult.

    Re: Witness to Jonestown on MSNBC

    If this is new, I havent seen it. But I have seen a documentary on this, they interview Jones' son that was there, on the basketball team.

    It's just evil, and very sad. they showed flyover shots of bodies, and I had to turn away, thinking of all of the children.

    Watch it and learn something. It happened 30 years ago and was huge.

    Yeah - kind of a 30 years ago Branch Davidian thing.

    This where the phrase "drinking the koolaid" comes from. Believing what you are told, at any cost.

    I just read up on this for about 20 minutes or so and that is quite enough for me, I am glad I didnt know about this before, ugh.
