No she doesn't

Here's the cutline, in case you can't read it:
"OH, SHE'S SO SAD": Psychic Annette Martin feels the presence of a ghost bride named Mary Anne during a visit to the Niles Canyon Railway Sunol depot.

Last-minute reminder: You can call spirits from the vasty deep all you want, but they're under no obligation to listen -- much less talk back, even if you're surrounded by credulous reporters and photographers. Ghost brides and psychics go on the funny pages 51 weeks a year. This week, they stay there.

Don't get us wrong. We encourage the celebration of Halloween and all other holidays that involve food, pagan rituals and beer. And if you're looking for a last-minute costume suggestion, may we suggest going as an open stylebook? You're guaranteed to scare the hell out of the undergraduates, most of whom have never seen one.

My pal Kathryn and I went to a party during kollidge years(*) as Will and Ariel Durant. No one got it.

So perhaps a stylebook would indeed be better.

(*)the famous Beaux Arts Ball in G-ville, 1974 - the year of the riot.

How about a fact checker?

Actually, I might go as a Statistical Dead Heat this year, because everybody knows there is no such thing as a statistical dead heat. Or do they?????

But Will and Ariel Durant -- that's cool. (I had escaped by the time of the '74 riot and might even be able to produce witnesses.)
