Where is the human race headed? Will 1999 be the last year of relative peace before doomsday? And in the meantime, will you finally shed those extra 10 pounds of flab this year? Of course, nobody really knows the answers to these and other pressing questions. Or do they? Psychics Kenny Kingston and Sylvia Browne believe they can see a thing or two about the future.
