By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – America is fascinated with magic -- from blockbuster movies to television and computer games. When former religion writer and author Christine Wicker set out across the country to find out why, she found a diverse collection of people who believe in the paranormal. Doug Fabrizio talks to Wicker -- on the Friday the 13th no less -- about these beliefs, and about how they survive in seeming contradiction to the traditional religions generally espoused in our country.
