riddle me this
Why hasn't someone thought of this yet?
Television has the opportunity to solve the two greatest mysteries of recent times - who killed Laci Peterson and is John Edward for real?
Think of the ratings. Think of the altruistic outcome of such a show.
Edward invites Laci's family, as well as Scott Peterson and his little sidekick Amber to a sitting with him, to be viewed live on tv.
Surely, with all those people there, Laci's spirit will want to contact at least one of them, right? To either comfort her mother or tell her sister what really happened or to possess Scott's soul until he beats himself to death with his own fists.
Laci could use Edward to tell what happened. He could do it in his usual fashion, using symbols and codes to tell the real story of what happened that fateful day in Modesto.
The killer is revealed, Edward is given the key to the city and proves that he is no fake! The ratings go through the roof. A book is written about it. The mini-series gets underway. Everyone is a winner!
As I mulled this scenario over in my head, I realized my one fatal flaw with this idea.
Edward is full of shit. If his talents were true, if he really did convey the words of spirits to the living world, then why hasn't he solved all the unsolved murders in America? Surely, of all those ghostly spirits of people who are not resting in peace because their murder has yet to be solved, a few of them would want to use John to talk to family members, don't you think?
I only thought of this because I dreamed last night that my family was on the John Edward show and he was talking to them through me, except I wasn't dead, I was at a rave, dancing with John Kerry and Al Franken.
Now that's what I call a nightmare.
