You're listening to America Overnight, now in its 29th year... or is it?
It is, don't worry. Tonight we're discussing thrift store oddities and one-of-a-kind finds. Peggy's on the line from Biloxi. She and her husband found a beautiful Himalayan salt lamp at a garage sale. Tell us about it, Peggy.
Peggy from Beloxi:
[Via telephone] I-I'd heard of salt lamps, y'know, uh, those glowy ricks you plug in? They're supposed to release negative ions. Clear the air. I got one - only four bucks - I put it in our living room. I thought it would look nice there. It gives the whole room this lovely orange glow.
Now, this is usually when the call takes a turn...
It's... my husband. When he's in the living room, he won't take his eyes off the lamp. He's obsessed with it. If I turn it off, he gets so upset. He says it needs to stay on, no matter what. Last night, I woke up at 3am. He wasn't in bed. I found him in the living room, staring at the lamp. He was smiling. His eyes were open, but I thought he might be sleep walking. So I shook him. He just kept smiling at the light. Then he started to speak. He said: "Every time a reflection reflects itself, it gets a little greener."
I've read that.
Then he turned to me. He was still smiling. Eyes open. My husband's eyes are brown. Almost black. But the eyes of the man in the living room last night... his eyes were green.
[Quickly and quietly, to Karen] Sounds just like Decatur. Get everything you can out of her, then call HQ.
[Full voice, to Peggy] Peggy I'm so sorry to cut you off there, but we need to go to commercial. I'd like you to stay on the line, though. My producer Karen needs a little more information, okay?
America Overnight will be right back.

- This recording is the alternate perspective of the situation described in "Green," one of the Dead Letters. In the letter, Peggy's husband attempts to record his experience from an incorporeal space, where he's able to see through the eyes of his own body as it's controlled by a foreign entity.
The file can be found in the Foundation in the Collapsed Department. From the Collapsed Department control point head towards Data Entry and Filing. Once you enter the main room, look up and slightly to your right and you'll see a darkened doorway on the 4th floor. Head to the room on the 3rd floor directly below this doorway and the recording will be in a corner to your right.
