LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

A conspiracy to shoot JFK, UFO's abducting farmers, herbal medicine. Give me a break! Michael Shermer thinks you should have your head checked at the door. Shermer, publisher of Skeptic magazine talks with Metro Pulse's Jesse Fox Mayshark about today's gullible society in the "Duke of Doubt."

Take a guided tour of some of Chicago's unsolved mysteries in "Perfect Crimes." From victims in sausage machines to the Mafia, Newcity Chicago's Ben Winters shows us some of the grisliest.

Also in News & Opinion; motivational seminars, Bill Gates on the hot seat, memories of Halloween, and finding a good handyman.
