Few trick-or-treaters. Laura had prepared a great meal, and her mom was getting settled in. We waited for the kids to arrived, but they just didn’t show up.
It reminded me of the first year that we lived in this house. There was a steady stream of children, then suddenly nothing. It wasn’t until the next day that we heard the reason – a murder had occured at the end of our street. Fortunately, the purpotrators had nothing to do with our neighborhood, and were just carrying a previous altercation through our community.
Laura wanted to watch more Ghost Hunters, but was exhausted from her whirlwind trip to Seattle. Since I had found links to criticisms of "Most Haunted" on Wikipedia, I decided to check on Ghost Hunters. It seems I was wrong about Most Haunted. It isn’t the fore-runner of Ghost Hunters. Apparently there was a mid-1990’s show in the UK of the same title which followed a similar format.
There were some interesting links to counter-websites. The first of these was an article by C. L. Darrow debunking the St. Augustine Lighthouse investigation, where the TAPS team videoed several shadowy figures. The depth of analysis into which this article delves makes me wonder if Darrow has any kind of life at all. The next is a group called SAPS, which plays on and targets TAPS, actually seeks to debunk most paranormal investigators, not just TAPS.
One must realize that these shows are trying to gain viewers, so of course they are going for the sensational. I would be skeptical of ANY evidence presented on any of these shows.
