The JREF Challenge amount has now reached US$1,100,000. And, though
this amount is available to any "Therapeutic Touch" practitioner who
wants it, and the June 2-4 trials are planned for Fort Lauderdale, NOT
ONE application has been received! Strange. With thousands of
trained practitioners out there, we were expecting (?) a swarm of
eager applicants. Do we begin to suspect that TT is a cruel hoax
worked on helpless hospital patients?

I'm in Washington, D.C., and will return to Florida on Monday. Will
there be a line-up at the JREF door? Will Ed Dames, the famous
"psychic," be answering my challenge? Or begin to tell the truth
about his fear of being tested?

I think we all know the answers to these questions.
