    Downtown Exorcism - Yogi's Den
    Based on the book and movie, The Exorcist, I always thought that you had to be a priest to be perform an exorcism. Apparently it is not true, carpenters can do if led properly. That's right its a bunch of carpenters doing this exorcism. I don't know if they are ordained carpenters or not. They don't look like carpenters to me. They look like homeless people.

    The head exorcist told me that they were all members of the carpenters union. I didn't argue with him. He didn't have the air of a man who really wanted to debate the difference between being a carpenter and being a member of the union. He did assure me though that they don't have a problem with the coffee shop.
