Ghost Cane

Today's post will be relatively shorter than my posts have been of late because I didn't really do anything today and the only thing I saw in the news that really struck me was the story about the woman in Hobart, IN who was selling her father's walking cane on Ebay which may or may not contain her father's ghost. Ebay has said that they will not pull the auction because the woman can actually deliver something substantial. From their point of view, it's the cane with a really interesting story that's being sold and if the buyer wants to believe that they are also buying a ghost, that's up to the buyer. As of this morning, there were 72 bids on the cane with the top being $487. She will buy something nice for her 5 year old son, who has been afraid to move around the house since her father died last year. Her thought was that getting rid of the cane will get rid of the ghost.

The total in Iraq has risen to 1270 today with the deaths of two more Americans today. 13 people have died in the month of December. The month that I will be documenting tonight will be September 2004. 80 people were killed in the month of September which brought the total for the war over 1000 to 1058.
