Story about psychic wasn’t fit for print

I was dismayed that editors of The News thought the Jan. 12 People Talk column about a psychic was fit to print. I expect to see such nonsense about a person who talks to dead people in the magazine racks at the supermarket checkout line, but in a responsible newspaper? And, I might add, the only major newspaper Buffalo has. When a respected newspaper publishes this psychic’s totally unwarranted claims, it tacitly endorses them, thereby making more people susceptible to being duped.

The late Buffalonian Paul Kurtz spent a lifetime fighting such idiocy and Dark Ages thinking. Shouldn’t The News do the same?
