In my pursuit of all things crime fiction, I came across this video. To the question of whether psychic detectives have any merit, we can say case closed in this instance.
What do you think about psychic detectives? I think they are more lucky than psychic.
James Randi, the host in this video, makes a good point. Why don't psychics pick up images from an item's history prior to the crime? As a knife enthusiast, I enjoy sharpening knives for friends and family. If one of those blades falls in the wrong hands, would a psychic detect my hands with a sharpening stone?
I don't think so. My pudgy digits aren't nearly sexy enough for a psychic detective special on History Channel.
