...most importantly, did she see it coming?

I put "psychic" in scare quotes not to attack the concept of clairvoyance but to question the so-called abilities of Ms. Browne. Who famously told Amanda Berry's mother in 2003 that her daughter was dead and to give up hope of finding her alive.

I always found her quite scary; with her hoarse voice and long talons. Also, she made a career out of defrauding people and pretending to speak on behalf of dead loved ones. Perhaps she really thought she could, I dunno.

Sylvia Browne predicted she'd die at 88. Only off by 11 years.

I have no qualms about putting "psychic" in scare quotes. "Psychic," "psychic," "psychic!"
