Do you, a close personal friend or any member of your family have a name that starts with or includes either the letter J or the letter G? Perhaps even a K? Did that person lose an older female relative or perhaps a male within the last two or three years or rather the last decade? Yes? Well Ive made contact with that person, and he or she wants you to know that he or she is happy and wants the family to move on with their lives! See? I could totally have a show like Crossing Over With John Edward. Like Edward, Allison DuBois is a self-proclaimed medium (or profiler), and shes the host of a new SyFy pilot in which she travels the country solving cold cases for law enforcement agencies. Law enforcement agencies DuBois has worked with, however, have denied that any of her tips were helpful. But hey, Patricia Arquettes character in Medium is based on DuBois, and thats enough for some folks. Lets get right down to it: Psychics are like church. Its completely 100 percent OK if its the sort of thing that will put folks minds at ease and help them through their grieving a process we all know can be terribly devastating. If it helps you cope, go for it as long as these alleged spirit-whisperers arent doing anything like making boatloads of money off of honest, hardworking people. Tickets to DuBois appearance are $95-$150.
