We can’t get any word on the Amazing Kreskin’s First Night performance (except for a second-hand report at a New Year’s Day party from someone who heard he was good), but there are newspaper reports out with his predictions for 2006. Among Kreskin’s amazing prognostications:
- NJ will try to attract tourists but shoo away new residents. (Hmmm, maybe the slogan should be New Jersey: Come, Look Around, Get Lost.)
- Baton Rouge will be the next big tourist destination.
- Poker will be the next crack cocaine.
- Movies will once again show double features!
Surely you know how The Amazing Kreskin works. The check for his appearance fee is always hidden somewhere in the building, and he has to figure out where it is or else the fee is waived. A person who knows where the check is holds one end of a handkerchief and Kreskin holds the other. He is not allowed to ask any questions, or touch the person other than to tug them along with the handkerchief. Obviously he reads the body cues from the other person to make them lead him to the check.

Think we could pay our property taxes this way? It’s somewhere on my property. Hold this handkerchief and if you find it, you can keep it.
Meanwhile, what are your predictions for the next 12 months?
