While in Chicago to do a series of shows, comedian Groucho Marx was invited to a séance. He decided to go even though he was skeptical. Incense burned. The lights dimmed. The trance medium worked herself into a supernatural state then announced, “I am in touch with the Other Side. Does anyone have a question?” Groucho wasn’t shy. “What is the capital of North Dakota?” he asked. As amusing as his irreverence is, it’s an example of how to NOT proceed next week. If you get a chance to converse with higher powers or mysterious forces, seek information you’d truly like to know.
