The death has been announced of James Randi, age 92.
Randi had an act that was escapology with some magic, much like a Canadian Houdini. He was a regular with Alice Cooper’s stage show, beheading Cooper each night.
He was also a skeptic. In the 1970s, when Uri Geller and others were claiming psychic powers, Randi set out to expose them for what they were. In fact, he always said that he hoped one day to find someone with genuine powers.
