How refreshing to read in a serious journal a proper account of poltergeist and other paranormal phenomena (“Schools that have ghouls”, Features, 30 October).
The author, Richard Sugg, starts with the usual tiresome “rational” explaining-away of some ghostly events. However, in his penultimate paragraph, writing of a ghostly happening in Cambridge, we learn that “it is not unreasonable [my italics] to suppose that this chill is created by something sucking ambient heat from a room, precisely to gain the energy needed for manifestation”. Put that in your rationalist pipes and smoke it, I say.
