I'm amazed that he got away with that stuff for so long.  I guess he chose his audience carefully at first, then figured he was smarter than everyone.  He then underestimated Carson

Carson and Randi working together to systematically take him apart, no less.  It was a hell of a thing to see.

I've just decided that if I ever DO somehow become rich and famous I won't be building a museum dedicated to myself.

Mainstream media indulges paranormal topics in cycles of decades, or generations. Similarly, the US military's "position" on UFOs cycles between coyly refusing conclusion and admitting UFO reports and recordings provide cover for experimental delivery systems.

My point being, over time, some fraction of a population becomes sufficient to fleece and manipulate...for a while.
