What's become of illusionist-magician David Copperfield? He just seems to have . . . disappeared!
—A.D. Clark, Sioux Falls, S.D.
The illusionist keeps busy touring more than 300 days a year. He recently put his hocus-pocus to practical use by foiling a would-be robber in West Palm Beach, Fla., making his wallet, cell phone and passport "disappear" rather than handing them over at gunpoint. Copperfield's Project Magic is a rehabilitative program established in 1982 that provides therapy to disabled patients through sleight-of-hand magic.
