Hey, Francis! I got somebody I'd like you to meet.

Some people appear to getting their panties in a wad over the pope laying hands on some guy and praying. They're saying he performed an exorcism on the guy right there in line at St. Peter's Square.

Here's the video:

Now, it looks to me like he did exactly what I said in the opening sentence: he laid hands on a fellow and offered a prayer. Heck, I've seen Baptists do that, so I'm certainly not surprised when the Bishop of Rome does it.

But, some folks are going all gaga over it, calling it an exorcism. And, heck, maybe it was.

If it was, and Pope Francis can do that (and I'm not doubting it), I wonder if maybe he'll do it again sometime.

I suggest his next visit to Washington, DC, would be a great time. So, in case the head of the Roman Catholic Church is reading this, here's what to do:
  • From Reagan National, have the driver take the George Washington Parkway to I-395 North.
  • Take the US-1 exit, merging onto US-1/14th Street.
  • Left on Madison.
  • Right on 15th NW.
  • Left onto E Street/Pennsylvania Avenue (you'll need to show ID, it's restricted).
  • Take the first right.
  • Ask for Barack.
I wish you much success!
