Bishop Hooper's Annus Horribilis

... was the year they made him a bishop.

In the last ten months, Penrose Hooper has (a) been elected bishop of the Lower Susquehanna Synod; (b) taken a month-long trip to rehab for his alcoholism; and (c) learned that his synod treasurer embezzled a million bucks.  Oh, and his daughter is studying to be come a rabbi.

Rumor has it that Hooper, shortly after his election, tried to back out of the job.  You can't blame him.
