Q Whatever happened to the mentalist called the Amazing Kreskin?
—E. McCray, Tempe, Ariz.

George Kresge, also known as "The Amazing Kreskin," is constantly on the road and in the air, performing some 300 shows a year. "I love my work and I've been blessed," says the New Jersey resident, 72, who stresses that he is not a psychic or fortuneteller, but rather a "mentalist" with a special gift to read the thoughts of others. "I've been doing this for a living since I was 11 years old." He has a new book, Mental Power Is Real, available through his website,
