Michigan town wants fortune-tellers' employment history

Warren, Michigan has just passed a new law requiring fortune-tellers to get "licenses, fees, fingerprints, criminal background reports and employment histories."

As Ed Brayton sez, "All fortune tellers are fraudulent and prey on the vulnerable. A fortune teller without a criminal background is every bit as incapable of telling fortunes as one with a criminal background. A fraud with a good employment history is no less a fraud."
