I was planning to get back on my feet with actual skeptical posts, but I’m afraid that I have more bad news to deliver — Robert Lancaster is currently in the hospital recovering from a stroke that left him partially paralyzed. Robert is a good friend and a wonderful man who has taken on people like Sylvia Browne in a way that few can, showing compassion for her victims while giving them the facts they need to see through her scam. He has been a frequent commenter on Skepchick and we’ve collaborated a few times to help one another spread the word on fake psychics. Every time I’ve seen Robert, I’ve gotten a giant bear hug from a happy, ever-positive, affable guy. Robert, everyone here at Skepchick wishes you a speedy recovery.
Here’s the thread on the JREF forum where his lovely wife Susan has posted the news (thanks, A, for letting me know). I’ll be keeping an eye out for updates, and in the meantime feel free to post your well-wishes below.
