Old Trout magazine treats us to a list of the 13 scariest Americans. They must have had a hard time making the list so exclusive -- give me five minutes in the lobby of Fox News on a Monday morning and I'd be over the limit. Even so, there's more scary monsters here than you'll find in a Scooby Doo marathon.

Evil insurance execs, creepy corporate snoops, and the wicked witch of the US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, Dubya favorite Edith Hollan Jones: "During arguments in the case the woman brought against her employers (Waltman v. International Paper), Jones purportedly commented that the behavior of the man who had pinched the woman's breasts wasn't so objectionable since he later apologized. And, added the judge, at least she hadn't been raped." If you're easily frightened, don't click on this link.

Can you help us out?
