For too long American ghosts have been living the high life feasting on our psychic energy.
What do these ghosts give us in return? Nothing, and that’s bad for us living folks. And truly, subsisting on stealing our psychic energy has to be demoralizing to these ghosts who haven’t done an honest day’s work in their deaths.
Likewise, it’s time for us the living to get over our prejudice over hiring dead workers. Let’s face it, being dead is one of life’s truly enduring resume stains. Can you recall even one instance of a ghost getting a job over an able-bodied person. I though not.
But it needn’t be this way. There are many jobs that ghosts can do better than the living. Please consider:
1) Hiring ghosts as security guards. They’d scare the heck out of robbers and even if tempted wouldn’t be able to cart away your valuables.
2) Use them as night lights. Look at how the eyes of the young woman in this picture. See how they glow. Don’t you want a little bit of light when you need to visit the bathroom at 3 am?
3) They’d be great for the CIA. They can fly anywhere, pass through and spy on anyone without being seen.
4) They’d be superb scouts for our armed forces. Even if caught–and how would that happen–how could any enemy kill them?
5) They could periodically check inside our nuclear reactors for leaks. What could radiation do to them? Many ghosts already glow a bit.
6) Nighttime security. Living people hate working at night and by themselves. Ghosts love it.
Ghosts and people working together. It’s a win-win situation.
Still time to enter the *Bump Off Your Enemies* Literary Event

364 days a year NORAD protects America from nuclear and other threats coming over the North Pole. But on Christmas Eve, this worthy arm of America’s armed forces tracks Santa’s gift-giving trip. Give NORAD’s website, http://www.noradsanta.org a look on December 24. Be sure to watch the videos showing sightings of Santa by F-14s and other jets.
