Peering into the crystal ball
Anybody can look back on 2006 and wax wise with 20/20 hindsight. It's trickier to look into the future and get it right. We've been asking you to play psychic and send
your predictions
for the coming year. So, it's only fair we share our own.

Meryl Page puts on her mystic diva's hat and sees a rough road for actor Ben Affleck, some indiscretion of his will be revealed.

Karen Waygood predicts Paris Hilton will grow weary of her name and change it to London Sheraton.

Our peerless leader, Tyson Wheatley, foresees Barry Bonds signing with the New York Yankees and falling one home run short of passing Hank Aaron as the all-time HR champion. (By the way, Tyson is fearless also).

Rich Cook channels his inner Donald Trump for this business prognostication: Netflix will put both Blockbuster and Hollywood Video out of business.

Nicole Saidi is the bearer of bad news, saying the U.S. will see another major E. coli outbreak, only this time it will be something people really like, such as chocolate.

My crystal ball tells me former American Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson will win a supporting actress Oscar for her role as Effie in Dreamgirls. I'm certain Masi Oka will earn an Emmy for his fabulous portrayal of Hiro Nakamura on the series Heroes. And just in case I'm wrong, let me say, in advance, the crystal is slightly cracked.
