Spoon bending, levitation and psychic goat killing

Something tells me I'm going to add this book to my Amazon.com wish list. All the earmarks of a classic: Cold War military paranoia, "paranormal activity" and good ol' fashioned American weirdos (I swear...if there were a world "league" of nations, we would lead the world in the weirdos per capita category).

3 in 4 American's beleive in the paranormal. So says Gallup, so it must be true - http://www.gallup.com/poll/content/login.aspx?ci=16915

I'm not certain if "Americans believe it to be true" makes something necessarily true. ;) Remember...Dr. Bill Frist said that it was "obvious" that Terry Schiavo was responding to visual stimulae...when the reality was that she was blind.

Americans believe in all kinds of whacked out bizzaroland things: ghosts, ESP, astrology, angels, trickle-down economics, compassionate conservatism, the designated hitter, etc. ;)
