Tabloid psychics way off target in 1988
NEW YORK: To hear America's taboid psychics tell it, 1989 will be an amazing year -- Fidel Castro will die in a hurricane, an Italian jetliner will crash into the Vatican and a UFO will land in Kansas.
But if such forecasts are to come true, the psychics will have to do a lot better in 1989 than they did last year when virtually nothing they predicted came to pass.
According to 10 top psychics polled by the National Enquirer, a tabloid read by millions, the following things were supposed to happen in 1988.
Denver psychic Lou Wright said Sarah Ferguson would have a baby, but his full prediction said the Duchess of York and Princess Diana would have babies on the same day, and that Fergie would have a boy. She had a girl.
Los Angeles Pschic Florence Vaty predicted an end to the Iran-Iraq war, but said the United States would force it to end.
National Examiner psychic-astrologer Belle Starr also forsaw an end to the Iran-Iraq war, but said it would come when millions of Iranians drowned themselves in the Gulf after a dying Ayatollah Khomeini ordered the entire nation to join him in the hereafter.
