I’m not making this blog the anti-Sylvia blog – honestly. (I’ll leave that to Stop Sylvia Browne.) And I hadn’t intended boring people with any more about Sylvia for a while. But it’s just great when anti-Sylvia articles are going mainstream. Following from CNN’s Anderson Cooper segment, is yesterday’s Chicago Sun Times article by Richard Roeper (he of the Ebert and Roeper movie reviews), that starts:
Remember that moment last year when it was announced they had come up with a vaccine that blocks nicotine addiction? How about when the troops began returning home from Iraq?
The Jennifer Aniston wedding -- that was something.
Not to mention the Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Lopez pregnancies, and the surprise defeat of Gov. Schwarzenegger in California.
What's that? You have no memory of any of those events taking place in 2006?
I suppose that's because they never happened -- despite the psychic powers of Sylvia Browne, who last January predicted all those things and many more events that did not occur.
To be fair, Browne did foresee the Britney Spears divorce. Pretty impressive, seeing as how the rest of the world was sure Brit and K-Fed would last forever.
I would say Roeper’s article gets two thumbs up, if the phrase wasn’t trademarked. So instead I just emailed Roeper to congratulate him on a good article.
