Extra viewers? And whenever any media outlet goes for the paranormal stuff it's
long ball ratings pining. 

Back at WJUL there was a woman who called herself a psychic, Gloria James. I
recall teching the show and witnessing this elder woman inhaling odd volumes of
water. And more water. Female caller: "Hi Gloria. What's up for my future?"
Gloria: "What do you think of abortion, honey?" It usually went downhill from
there. I guess I was hoping that Gloria's interrogatives were coincidental,
misplaced, Tourette's-like utterances. I guess the guest wasn't the only one
thirsting for something.
