Link - Psychic Powers Article
By way of Mark Evanier's excellent website, a skeptical report from Molly Fitzpatrick entitled "What I Learned From Five Manhattan Palm Readers." Like Mark (and me), Molly doesn't believe in psychic powers and looks at some of what they call "Barnum Techniques," after P.T. Barnum. These are statements meant to apply to almost everyone, but still personal enough to make patrons think there may be something to these palm reading phonies. And I love how she calls out the odious John Edward as a charlatan, which he totally is. Go read it!
