This happened about 6 months ago on Louisiana Hwy 57, just outside of
Dulac, a little town in the bayou country of Louisiana, and while it
sounds like an Alfred Hitchcock tale, it's real.
An Ohio businessman, Saul Rubins, abandoned his disabled vehicle on the
side of the road, and attempted to hitchhike. The night was pitch dark
in the middle of a thunderstorm. Time passed slowly and no cars went by.
It was raining so hard he could hardly see his hand in front of his face.
Suddenly, through the sheets of rain, he saw a car moving slowly,
approaching and appearing ghostlike in the rain.
It slowly and silently crept toward him and stopped. Desperately

about his supernatural experience.
The room became silent and everybody got goose bumps when they realized
Saul was telling the truth (and not just some drunk).
About 30 minutes later two Cajuns, dripping wet, walked into Schmoopy's
and one says to the other, "Look, Boudreaux, ders dat idiot what rode in
