From Today's Anomalist

From today's Anomalist:

Camera Ban Hinders Hunt For Swedish Sea Monster The Local. A Jämtland county council order banning cameras on the shores of Storsjön in Östersund in northern Sweden has forced those doing camera surveillance of Sweden's legendary Great Lake Sea Monster (Storsjöodjure) to seek permission of the council. Permission was granted as long as the cameras are located under the water surface of the lake. Nain Rouge: The Red Gnome Cryptomundo. Nain Rouge is French for “red dwarf” or “red gnome,” a mythical creature that originated in Normandy, France. But in the US, the Nain Rouge is said to haunt Detroit, Michigan, where residents view it as “the harbinger of doom." Have you heard about the Nain Rouge? Also, a preview of the new season of MonsterQuest, in Death at Loch Ness.

Yes, the critter is in my MONSTER! book, under a different heading, although there seem to be so many of these bloody red-capped, devilish creatures. Certainly don't think they are part of cryptozoology, but seem to be a more malevolent take on our beloeved fairies!

I must say, that whole business with the Ostersund cmaera-ban in Sweden is troubling, to say the least. I'll chalk it up to the local city council in Ostersund trying to make money out of this. This was also discussed in Cryptomundo and some of the folks there came to the same conclusion.
That's "socialism," eh, Nick? :) Makes one wonder if capitalim is so bad after all...
