Fear the ghosts, there’s gonna be a million of them!

At TAM8, or more precisely, in protest against TAM8.

Clairvoyants, mediums and psychics worldwide are invited to contact spirits in a major nonviolent protest of an annual convention of skeptics taking place at the South Point Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas July 8-11, 2010.

Now I’m not sure what “contacting spirits in a major nonviolent protest” means exactly: will the psychics gather in a protest of their own and nonviolently contact the spirits or do they mean to contact the ghosts and ask them to gather in a nonviolent protest? Wonder what that would look like? You can read the rest for yourself, sounds like a joke to me (the event’s main organizer is called Doc Paranormal!!), but you never know with these mediums and psychics everything is possible. I mean get a hold of this:

“The beauty of this event is that it will be held at multiple locations. So even during the height of the march, traffic will not be interrupted and police will not have to restrain crowds. The spirits and ghosts will be invisible, although their presence will be sensed by psychically-sensitive pedestrians and autograph hounds.

Edgar Allan Poe Community College? POE? I sense a joke, but then I’m not psychic!
