Paging Father Damian

Every day, according to an inside estimate, one person in Germany has a demon driven out of them in the rite of exorcism.  Apparently, the demand is steep (insert obligatory German joke here).  About one applicant in ten is actually exorcised; the others must make do with Thorazine.  Still, the demand is so high that -- when bishops don't authorize the rite frequently enough -- the possessed will seek help in neighboring countries, or from unauthorized exorcists.

Next January, we expect to read that a team of highly skilled exorcists has been called to Number One Observatory Circle, in DC.  'Cause He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named will finally be gone, but who knows what he'll leave behind?
