What I want to know is, why is that Baptist minister a ghost in the first place?

Excellent (by which I mean, "Can you believe this?") article in yesterday's NY Times on how to get rid of ghosts in your house. Excerpt: "Before attempting to cleanse a household of ghostlike sounds and scents, the homeowner must first determine whether such sounds and scents are actually of the other world. Happily, there is no shortage of instruction manuals on the subject. One, an e-book called “Is My House Haunted? A Practical Guide,” was written by Bonnie Vent, the medium who founded the San Diego Paranormal Research Project."

Great article! But, I think one must ask this question of oneself (particularly today): how far is a belief in angels and (dead but otherwise lively) saints from a belief in ghosts? If belief in one could be judged silly, might not belief in the other equally be judged so? Such speculations have been the grist for cosmologists since the charting of the stars...
