Remember I mentioned the “ZARGON” license plate? Gail Cohen wrote me from Miami, Florida to tell me whose car that was. His name’s Rex. I’ve talked about moments of technological vertigo (technovertigo? technologigo? technigo?) in the past. This is another such moment.
So apparently Gail and Rex are both members of the International Association of Haunted Attractions, and his hobby is being an interactive actor in haunted houses. You know the guys who jump out at you with goalie masks and chain saws? He’s one of them. Oh, heck, take a look for yourself. So it turns out that terror really is his business, at least as a hobby, and I suppose it does take guts. Just not the kind I meant.
