Bring Out Your Dead

John "I Talk to the Dead So You Don't Have To" Edward is slated for two appearances in August at the Crowne Plaza. They're both sold out, but if you really want in, you can find tickets online for under $200. Edward, a master of what's known in the psychic business as the cold read, has pulled the wool over the eyes of thousands of people ---probably millions if you count his now-defunct Crossing Over TV show. Maybe it's just me, but isn't there something wrong with tricking people into thinking you're communicating with their dead loved ones?

So what are you to do when the snake oil salesman comes to town? Get into the tent, friends, there's a great story there, even if it does cost you $200.

While he's here, maybe local construction companies could use him to locate bones before they start digging ---it might be cheaper than hiring Hartgen Associates after the fact.
