Comments About Your Comments

First of all, thanks to everyone who's visited my site and left comments on the blog.

The fourth episode of Dead Tenants, "The Last Resort," caused a stir, didn't it? Almost everyone who watched it was very affected by how sincerely Fred was suffering, and was unnerved by how the spirit seemed to be getting hold of him again at the end of the episode. When PRS does a procedure to release a spirit, we always tell the haunted people that it is a beginning, a step in the process. The ghost that had been attacking Fred had been victimizing him for four years and could not be expected to go without a fight. If we were to visit with Fred today (to my knowledge he has not been contacted) we might get a very different picture. Fred is a very strong person even though he appeared to be broken down, and this will help him and Kathleen as they conquer their fears and banish the spirit for good.

Some people have posted on web chat sites that they thought Fred was "crazy" for opening his home and his problem to the public through appearing on Dead Tenants. I say he he is in fact a very brave man to be able to talk honestly about his fears into a camera and into many thousands of living rooms. It is this kind of courage that even a bad spirit will have a hard time with.

About the crucifix... ( UPDATE: TwiZtidX, I know you weren't offended... many thanks)

I don't want anyone to think that I criticized it as a symbol. It was this particular cross that I received a bad impression from, that it had been used in an improper way some time in its history. I doubt that Kathleen destroyed it because it is a family heirloom--but she did take it down and put a cheerful subsitute in its place. I haven't had a chance to review the episode for a closer look at the crucifix's details, but I imagine there are as many variations on crucifixes as there are craftspeople who make them.

Also, of course there are people claiming that we psychics on Dead Tenants are fake. This is only natural. All I can say to this is, we might all tell you that at times in our lives as psychics it would be easier for us if it were not real. It's a "gift" you can't return to the store even when you don't like it! But as a Dead Tenants cast member I can tell you that there is no trickery, with the exceptions of course being sound effects put on the voices sometimes. You couldn't see it clearly because of the camera angle, for example, but that clipboard was sitting securely all alone, and really did slide off and fall to the floor "all by itself." Paranormal activity? Maybe. Earthquake? No. String pulled by a production assistant? No. So far the maybe's are winning.

If I get any updates about Fred and his family I'll let everyone know.

In the meantime, I invite everyone to join in the Dead Tenants discussion forum at TLC's website, http://community.discovery.com/groupee/forums/a/cfrm/f/4481926908 , where you can share your views about the show, its cases, and your own paranormal experiences.

Farah, I am sorry if I somehow implied that you criticized the crucifix as a symbol. In no way did that ever cross my mind. In fact, I agreed with you. I am Catholic, even through the TV screen I could see that something was odd about that particular crucifix. I'm glad you pointed it out to them, especially when it could have caused this kind of uproar ;) Obviously (to most of us) something was terribly wrong with it. I apologize for maybe sending out the wrong message in my comment.

PS- I LOVE your accent!
