The View From Above

Astrologer Jeane Dixon's knack for the supernatural was always well-developed, but her performance of late has been nothing less than extraordinary. Although she passed away in January, the workaholic apparition continues to haunt the nation's newspapers, producing her horoscope on a daily basis, much to the delight of her most diehard readers.

Actually, it's just that she'd done a few months work in advance. (It's easier to do that when you can see into the future.) At least that's how the San Francisco Chronicle explains the phenomenon; it says a new horoscope column will take the place of Dixon's on April 1. But given the prodigious output of Tupac Shakur since his untimely demise, and the stunning resurrection of Arsenio Hall (or did it just seem like he was dead?), it's probably best to take a wait-and-see approach. In the brand-milking '90s, death is not the career-ender it once was.
