Glenn Beck’s mention that he saw Jerry Falwell prompted an avalanche of people who apparently thought Beck had the sixth sense and was seeing dead people.

Those who assumed (or at least wanted everybody else to assume) that Beck was referring to Jerry Falwell Sr., who died in 2007, included tweeters from New York magazine:

In reality, Beck was referring to Jerry Falwell Jr. An article about Falwell Jr. and his weight loss is here.
