Psychic divines that her client is very stupid.

But apparently not infinitely stupid. (The client) only caught on to (the psychic's) act after the psychic got her to fork over $9,000 for items from a Polo Ralph Lauren store that the supposed seer said were needed for a "ritual."

The psychic in question is a couple of blocks from me, in some very desirable real estate. Either she owns the building from way back or she's managing to bilk a lot of people.

In other news, whenever you C&P from the New York Post, pasting the text also adds on a bit with a link to the original page. Very nice.

It consists in "reading character" in the wrinkles made by closing the hand. The pretence is not altogether false; character can really be read very accurately in this way, for the wrinkles in every hand submitted plainly spell the word "dupe." The imposture consists in not reading it aloud.
