Telecommunications Exorcism in Reeves, LA

- January 4, 2008

bq. A town in the US state of Louisiana is to be allowed to change its telephone prefix so that residents can avoid a number many associate with the Devil. Christians in Reeves have been unhappy since the early 1960s about being given the prefix, 666 – traditionally known as the Biblical “number of the beast”. For the next three months, households will be able to change the first three digits of their phone numbers to 749.

Story here. Praise the Lord! And Sen. Mary Landrieu, Sen. David Vitter, and Rep. Jim McCrery, apparently. Chasing the devil out of town? Now that’s what I call constituent service.
