LINK: Halloween 2017: The Ghost of Harry Houdini

Here's a must-read post at the family blog Sweet Juniper ("We are just two more yuppies raising their kids in the most dangerous city in America"). It's hard to describe, so I'd recommend just clicking the headline and go.

On that fateful day in 1926, a stubborn Houdini was hauled from the Statler hotel to Sinai-Grace Hospital, which like most places of historical interest in Detroit, is now a parking lot. Nonetheless, my visit to the parking lot on the corner of John R and Willis totally proved that the site is nonetheless haunted by the ghost of the great magician who died right there. What a showman!
