So we are not surprised that the man used a psychic to find a downed airplane?
Even the best psychic cannot make his presidency a high point of our history.
From The Weekly Standard Scrapbook:
Jimmy Carter's Psychic Connection
Former President Jimmy Carter reveals that he once used a psychic in a trance to do what the United States' satellite surveillance system couldn't - find a downed American plane.
In an interview for GQ magazine excerpted in The Weekly Standard's Scrapbook section, Carter recalls:
"We had a plane go down in the Central African Republic - a twin-engine plane, small plane. And we couldn't find it.
"So we oriented satellites that were going around the earth every 90 minutes to fly over that spot where we thought it might be and take photographs. We couldn't find it.
"So the director of the CIA (Stansfield Turner) came and told me that he had contacted a woman in California that claimed to have supernatural capabilities. And she went into a trance, and she wrote down latitudes and longitudes, and we sent our satellites over that latitude and longitude, and there was the plane."
The Weekly Standard comments: "The Scrapbook figures this woman is probably no longer alive. Otherwise they'd have found bin Laden by now."
Check Your Wallets
If you find any twenty dollar bills with fruit on them, send them to me. As reported by ABC News, these bills are worth way more than their face value.
DALLAS - An ordinary fruit sticker that mysteriously ended up on a $20 bill could spur currency collectors to bid up to 1,000 times the bill's face value at an auction Friday.
The flawed bill bears a red, green and yellow Del Monte sticker next to Andrew Jackson's portrait. The bill originated at a U.S. Treasury Department printing facility in Fort Worth, but how the fruit tag found its way onto the greenback is unknown.
"I've collected for probably seven years now and nothing comes close to the way people react to it - their eyes pop out," said Daniel Wishnatsky, a Phoenix currency collector who bought the bill in 2003 on the eBay auction Web site for $10,100.
Heritage Galleries and Auctioneers was auctioning the bill for Wishnatsky in Orlando, Fla. The auction company and Wishnatsky, a member of the Society of Paper Money Collectors, think the bill could fetch two to three times his investment.
