I was in college when "Jonestown" was a media event, on November 18, 1978 when Congressman Leo J. Ryan and four other members of his party were shot and killed as they attempted to board a plane at Port Kaituma airstrip.


408 American citizens committed suicide at a communal village they had built in the jungle in Northwest Guyana. The dead were all members of a group known as “The People’s Temple” which was led by the Reverend Jim Jones. It would soon be learned that 913 of the 1100 people believed to have been at “Jonestown” at the time, had died in a mass suicide.

I can still remember the video of the Congressman and his party trying to board the plane and the people running out from around the plane shooting at them...Anwar Sadat was killed much the same way...
