Vanessa Bolano is a reporter for WGNO-TV, which is Channel 26 in New Orleans.
Channel 26 is the silly channel, more or less, meaning they do a lot of offbeat stuff. So of the New Orleans TV news people, WGNO would be the ones who’d send a reporter up to St. Francisville to hang around The Myrtles and look for ghosts.
Y’all know about The Myrtles, right? It’s a cool place. Swell-lookin’ old plantation house. You’d love to live there.
Except you wouldn’t. Because it’s haunted like nobody’s business.
I dunno if I believe all that business. Maybe I haven’t watched enough cable TV. I don’t go for all the Ghostbusters business.
Just ask Bolano if you don’t believe it. She’ll show you this…
No, that ain’t a bug. Bugs don’t look like that.
Is it a camera trick? I dunno. It looks kinda like a clear balloon somebody let the air out of.
The ghostbuster type crowd talks about “orbs” and says they’re really ghosts. And those “orbs” are what a lot of people who claim they’ve seen ghosts at the Myrtles say they’ve seen. That looks like what they’re talkin’ about.
I dunno. You figure it out.
But on Friday, Bolano’s full “I survived my trip to the Myrtles” story runs on Channel 26.
