A Really Scary Ghost Story by Carl Llewellyn Weschcke

Recently Llewellyn published a book with the intriguing title, Don’t Call Them Ghosts. That made me remember some of the various “ghosts” I have encountered in my life. And the many stories I’ve heard over the years.Perhaps we shouldn’t call true “spiritual survivors” ghosts – but it is still a good enough term for many paranormal encounters until the nature of the experience is better understood.

Many years ago I had a really scary experience that taught me a few lessons about the personal nature of paranormal encounters and the problem of pre-judgement. I knew a lady and knew that she “played around” even though she was married to a nice and successful guy, had two fine children and a good professional career. In those days, I drove a convertible and on a warm autumn evening I had the top down. I had been working late and as a I drove through downtown on the way home I heard a newsboy shout (that’s how long ago this happened) “St. Paul woman shot in motel room.”

That's one of the reasons I stopped playing with the Ouija when I was a teen. *nods*

Interesting story. I was talking about these kinds of things with a coworker today. Ghosts. Spirits. I think I'd like to read that book mentioned.
