Black goo that spilled from a tanker on the Pennsylvania Turnpike caused a major traffic jam. The tires of about 150 cars became covered in the muck, and many vehicles had to be towed away. More on the mishap here.
Professional paranormal investigator and feature columnist for Skeptical Inquirer science magazine, Joe Nickell, provided his skeptic's take on the paranormal. Nickell has investigated many so-called ghost sightings and experiences, and often is able to explain the anomalies in scientific terms. "What I'm trying to do with my work with ghosts [or bigfoot]... is to actually go and actually investigate... and provide the simplest and best scientific explanation for it," he said.
