Halloween
From Dappled Things

Is Kansas City’s Anglo-Catholic Episcopal church haunted?
(Cue Bach's 'Toccata and Fugue' on the organ.) Is such a thing even possible? Is it a psychic imprint like a recording, an apparition of the person (The Sixth Sense combined aspects of both - the ghosts initially seem stuck at the time of their death) or a demon pretending to be him? And is the late Fr Henry David Jardine an AC martyr who died accidentally, rather like Fr Alexander Mackonochie, or the disreputable man and suicide his enemies made him out to be? Discuss.

(I didn't know KCMO had ACs! Other than the stealth ones at a conservative Central church who taught me in Sunday school.)
