Too good to pass up: According to Ben Radford at the Center for Inquiry, SyFy's Ghost Hunters International managed to find "evidence" for the ghost of Rose Hall, an apparently famous Jamaican apparition. Unfortunately, there's a catch: The White Witch never existed. She was a character in a 1929 novel of the same name. Oops.
On the other hand, if the Ghost Hunters make it over to Britain, they might be able to find equally persuasive evidence of a ghost, a vampire, and a werewolf living together on the set of BBC Three's Being Human, which wrapped up its excellent second series last night, to air later this summer in the US on BBC America. I must admit that when I read that production was moving from Bristol to Wales for next season, I had images of the three supernatural creatures piling into a U-Haul, but I was pleased to see that the transition is being handled a bit more gracefully than that.
