Scary Sheriff, et al.

Posted By on Tue, Oct 31, 2006 at 3:48 PM

Maricopa County's very own Sheriff Joe Arpaio has made the list of "The Thirteen Scariest People in America" in the October issue of Old Trout magazine, "a bi-monthly journal of political delusions, truthiness, celebrity antics, and cultural nonsense."

Most of Sheriff Joe's antics may be familiar to Arizonans in reach of a newspaper, but the rest of the eclectic list are likely to be relative strangers, perhaps with the exceptions of Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback and billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife.

After you're done reading up on these folks, browse some more at AlterNet, an award-winning news magazine and online community whose aim is to "inspire citizen action and advocacy on the environment, human rights and civil liberties, social justice, media, and health care issues." (Very little of Old Trout's content is online, but the magazine has an interesting history page at its site.)
