Psychic Scumbags Are Like Buzzards

Wow, some people have no shame. Take, for example, all of the psychic woo-meisters who are taking advantage of Michael Jackson’s death to promote their flim-flammery…
When Glynis McCants looks at Michael Jackson’s life, she sees the number five.
Numerologist Glynis McCants says that with his numbers, Jackson was a draw to fans.
Jackson’s talent was discovered when he was 5 years old, he came to fame as a member of the Jackson 5 and he planned a series of 50 concert dates in London, England, as part of a comeback tour before he died on June 25 at the age of 50.
For McCants, a noted numerologist and author, those facts are very telling: “Five is the number for drama, and it was in his life his whole life.”
It just gets worse from there, with practically every huckster from Uri Geller to the local crazy old bat reading chicken entrails on the corner attempting to ride this bandwagon of stupidity. A more appropriate title for the article would be “Psychics see dollar signs in exploiting Michael Jackson’s death”. These opportunistic scumbags don’t ever seem to miss the chance to make a quick buck – whether it is this or by claiming, like uber-douchebag John Edward, to be talking to the dead, they’re like buzzards picking over the meat of a carcass. Gah…
What’s worse, this is a big story on a major, mainstream news outlet – freakin’ CNN of all places! My respect for CNN has just dropped by about five orders of magnitude. If you’re as disgusted as I am about CNN giving serious attention to this lunacy, contact them and let your thoughts be known.
