Bohemian Tragedy
Members of the ultra-exclusive Bohemian Club—2,500 of America’s richest, most conservative men, including Henry Kissinger, George H. W. Bush, and a passel of Bechtels, Basses, and Rockefellers—are known to urinate freely against the ancient redwoods that cover their 2,700-acre property. Have they been chopping down the trees as well? According to one former member turned whistle-blower, the San Francisco–based society may have logged some of its old-growth forest. Drawing on his own Ivy League ties, the author investigates, with a daring sortie into the ceremonial kickoff of the Bohemians’ annual encampment.

  1. What about the creepy things they do in Bohemian Grove? “Ultra-conservative” Henry Kissinger gave Obama his first job and has been a vocal supporter of Obama’s heralding in the “New World Order.” What the heck is the “New World Order” and how does it relate to Bohemian Grove?

  2. Bohemian Grove Members are meeting right now.

    While the redwoods are important, there are far more insidious concerns at hand here.

  3. JSF:

    Should we be surprised to learn that Bohemian Club members (literally) are urinating against the great redwoods?
    These are puny men, impotent, temporal, and transient, likely suffering phallic envy against the mighty soaring grandeur of the strong, virile, perpetually erect redwoods.
    Cutting the giant redwoods down is their castration fantasy, a way of asserting masculine dominance over something much greater than their infinitesimally small, futile and flaccid membership.

  4. Now THIS is sad! Being on the opposite side of the US, we hope to see these trees one day. Aarrrggghh!

  5. My grand dad was docent/steward of these redwoods and I seem to be following in his footsteps. (Green Ministry of for this information. I’m passing it on, baby.

  6. Just more firewood for their ‘Cremation of Care.’ Hmm, guess their getting ready for a big barbecue… Wonder ‘who’ is on the menu?
