ptsum,
Thanks, I did read it and it was very interesting. Sorry I didn't check the link before I made my comments. It sounds like that guy did alot of digging into the case and it was very different from what everyone else has been saying all of these years. I think many people just repeat a story they've heard from somebody else and few people will take the time to throughly research an event as well known as this one.

Whoa - uh - huh?!
I grew up in No. VA and I was fascinated/terrified by The Exorcist when I was a kid.
Later, there were many times I said to someone, "those are the steps that the priest falls down in The Exorcist" when I was in Georgetown. But the real-life exorcism took place somewhere in MD I think??
Anyway, I, for one, would love to hear your story.

EDIT: Oops - I just read your previous post. I'll go try to educate myself...
