Yep! Lotsa the rednecks that I grew up with and work with, who would have been the first to laugh that stuff off years ago—even back when Ghostbusters first hit the screen—are spending what should go to make their alimony or child support payments buying EMF meters, Infra-red scopes and cameras, digital recorders, etc. all with the presumption that there are ghosts out there who are “just dying” to have their pictures taken with someone from Macclenny, Florida.
Many of these guys have served in the military during Desert Storm, so I know they’ve had some experience with low-light-sensative equipment, and infra-red imaging technology. I can only assume that since people have died everywhere that people have lived on this planet, there must be as much of a chance for ghosts and demons to be dwelling out in the wilds of the Near East as in upstate New York. (In fact Jesus is credited with having said that demons dwell in dry, desolate places). So I guess all the paranormal photos of Saddam Hussein’s apparition giving U.S. troops the finger should be on their way to us soon—I’ll keep my fingers crossed!
