no fault with spiritual media of yore? Yet at closer
inquiry by professionals experienced in charlatan 
exposure they turned out frauds.

Science doesn't work that way. There's nothing wrong with
wanting to believe a piece of good news. There's plenty of
wrong with being gullible enough to fall for common crooks
camouflaging as scientists.

I wasn't looking for that guy, but I kept hearing mentions

school he teaches.

I did a websearch of on him in conjunctions with Randi, and
