Paranormal Freakout: I saw a ghost.

This morning I saw a ghost floating up in the neighbor’s back yard. When I looked again, it was really just a painter climbing a ladder. With the face of a human skull!

Seeking the Puerto Rican Chupacabra

By Benjamin Radford

The chupacabra hasn’t reared its ugly head in Albuquerque lately. In fact, it’s been almost exactly three years since the last local sighting on the Westside. But many believe the creatures are out there, sucking the blood from goats (chupacabra means “goatsucker” in Spanish) and other livestock. Descriptions of the chupacabra vary widely, but the typical version is a creature 4 to 5 feet tall. It has short, powerful legs, long claws, and terrifying black or glowing red eyes. Some claim it has spikes down its back; others report seeing stubby, bat-like wings.

Jesus and Mary Appear in Frost; Radford Appears on the History Channel

Alibi columnist Ben Radford will be on “MysteryQuest” looking for ghosts in haunted parts of Los Angeles. Tune in to the History Channel on Sunday at 9 p.m. for an episode called “Return of the Amityville Horror.”

“Hopefully they didn’t edit out my skepticism!” Radford writes.

Speaking of skeptics, here’s an interesting news release I was e-mailed this morning:

JESUS AND MARY REVEALED TO AN ATHEIST! CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!

In a small town near Farmington, N.M., an atheist has found the image of Mary and baby Jesus on his window in the early morning light of December 11, 2009. ...

The 40-year-old truck driver says he is still skeptical, but believers are sure to find some significance it the frosty windowpane.

What do you think? Is this guy an idiot and that’s the work of the Big Guy? Or is this guy an idiot and that’s just some frost?
