Reading the body (Part 3 of reading the tea leaves)

Thursday, July 14th, 2005

At the moment I’m semi-watching some guy named John of God read peoples’ sicknesses and use the power of dead doctors to attempt cures on them. He just stuck forceps (a term also used to describe the rearend of an earwig) up a woman’s nose and twisted the hell out of something in her head to cure a serious back problem. I hope the woman’s problem is solved. He just did it again to a woman with a tumor in her breast.

They say it doesn’t hurt.

    Years and years ago, I read “Arigo: Surgeon of the Rusty Knife” by John Grant Fuller. Evidently there were a series of Brazilian psychic healers who operated in a manner similar to “John of God.”

    Ah, is the narrator credible?
