Why I Miss Caribbean Journalism, Yet Again

Demon possession at Shortwood Teachers' College?

The Star validated its headline by describing the signs of demon possession in the girls as 'frothing at the mouth', 'jumping all over the place ... barking like a dog', speaking a 'different language' and in a 'coarse voice'. One little girl who was allegedly possessed, was said to be very strong. However, in the same story, the reporter quoted Bishop Ade-Gold who said, "The affected students were influenced by demons, but were not possessed. He said the difference was that the students were aware of what was happening, which is quite different from what happens when someone is possessed when they are not conscious."



It has been ever thus. The real party is always somewhere where Kia isn't.

Don't despair. I bet there are lots of demon-possessed folk in the D.C. area.

Leslie is right. One of them works in my office, not 50 feet from where I sit.
