The good news: We were profiled on MSNBC.com today!
The bad news: I think they're making fun of us.
The story spotlights Cassadaga - the psychic/medium/clairvoyant town just northeast of Orlando.
"Spiritualists Draw Tourists to Florida Town" is the headline of the story, and after that, things pretty much go downhill. By the end of the first paragraph, we learn the area has a "musty odor," and the homes are "cluttered." And as much as you'd hope the really good spirits would come out when a journalist arrives, that's not how things went down in Casadaga. Apparently, the only ghost that turned up for the seance was one complaining of a problem with acid reflux. (seriously)
Thank goodness, the writer sat in on another reading where things really started cooking. The psychic informed a young female customer that she will be taking a trip sometime in the future. NOW GET THIS - the woman does, in fact, have plans to go away next June. Erie. And if that's not enough for ya, the psychic went on to say the young woman's mother needs to take more vitamins. "Yes," the girl replies, "That is very on point. My mom hasn't been eating right lately."
Freaky stuff - I just got goosebumps.
