Numerology and Haider’s death

I spent this weekend in Carinthia and got treated to the local press. The KTZ had on their front-page a story about a numerologist who had calculated that Haider was in great danger during October and November. She had tried to warn him, but they didn’t manage a meeting before his date with a concrete fence post.

As usual, the story did not ask the only really relevant question: How many other calamities had she predicted in her career that did not came to pass?
