QAnon conjecture

Elaine noted that we don’t see as many tabloid psychics as we once did. Where have all the psychics gone?

It occurred to me that they’ve been replaced by QAnon, which allows everyone to tell the future. And the bizarre celebrity content that’s become part of QAnon fabulism — JFK Jr., Dale Earnhardt, Michael Jackson, Robin Williams, all spotted or expected in Dealey Plaza last November — adds a strong tabloid flavor to the political lunacy. Remember Elvis sightings?

I have neither the time nor the interest to pursue this conjecture. But I think it’s plausible.
