My commentary in my current book In Real Time about the future of the world is rather timely at this moment. This past week we've seen at a NY airport and just yesterday at LAX airport a massive panic that became literally a nightmare for passengers within both airports. It is mainly based on the fear of guns out of control in our culture, what with even the most protected, defense equipped people of all Police, being victims of shootings. Today we have cities out of control with gun victims. We now have a scenario that’s bordering on sheer panic. The fear itself is not simply with an actual enemy. We have a scenario based on fear and anticipation of misinterpreting any sound that could be construed as a gun shooting threat. This parallels the year preceding World War II, when in the United States, there was a massive fear of the enemy Nazi Germany invading this country. It was at times critical. Along came a man with a radio play…War of the Worlds. It was Orson Wells, and by the end of the broadcast, panic ensued in certain parts of the United States. It happened because the psychological setting was already in place for such a story to be misread as really happening at the moment. God forbid we reach a point in our society that people will be allowed to carry guns in darkened movie theaters and similar settings. All one will need is a mal contempt, a screwball, a wise guy, or what have you, shouting out a certain phrase, or creating a noise that will be interpreted as a threatening gun massacre, and I will hate to tell you what I predict will happen, and it will happen. Let’s be reminded that at the beginning of World War II, our President, FDR said “The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself.” LISTEN TO KRESKIN'S COMMENTARY HERE

THE AMAZING KRESKIN’S
FUTURE WITH THE STARS
$30 RARE COLLECTORS ITEM $30 RARE COLLECTORS ITEM $30 RARE COLLECTORS ITEM $30
This book has already become a collector’s item, as it never found its way into the stores. Kreskin has mentioned it in hundreds of interviews in the past decade because some 90 famous people contributed their reflections for this book printed in the year 2000. Each of the celebrities was asked to look into the future from their own perspective and point of view. The building in which this and scores of other publications were housed was shut down by the courts in Canada for many weeks and months, leaving the material inaccessible. The fact that there are a few page duplications within the printing makes this all the more one-of-a-kind.

Review: Einstein the Play:Yours truly just saw the play production Einstein which has been picked as one of the top 10 shows of this year’s NY Fringe Festival. Basically this is a one man show in which actor Jack Fry plays multiple characters, and he also has written the play. I found this to be a masterpiece. You’re going to be entranced by Jack Fry’s brilliant personification of Einstein. This presentation mainly takes place in his earlier life. You find yourself learning about a young man with inner struggles, including that of a marriage for which he is seeking divorce, but in spite of all this, he is brimming over with a scientific revelation that he is struggling to gain acceptance for. Of course the world knows him as the genius who came up with the Theory of General Relativity, and his impact on technology, which has changed the way we live today. Fry researched an immense amount of information about Einstein which has only been available in recent years. I don’t believe any actor alive today could do a more brilliant rendition of the personality and thinking of Einstein then we find in the presentation of Jack Fry. Kreskin
