Why does every strip joint have a ghost story?   The Stripper’s Spooky Tale Retired after 20 years of stripping, author Erin Louis retells the story of her encounter in a haunted dressing room.  She heard lilting laughter from nowhere.  When she went out in the hall a moment later, she saw a “strange glowing orb” floating in the hall.
