People see Holy Mother in Underpass Stain

Some see Virgin Mary in underpass stain

CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- A steady stream of the faithful and the curious, many carrying flowers and candles, have flocked to an expressway underpass for a view of a yellow and white stain on a concrete wall that some believe is an image of the Virgin Mary.

Alright, I realize that the Lord is supposed to work in mysterious ways, but a grit stain on a freeway underpass? What ever happened to pillars of flame or images in the clouds? Or the good old burning bush? With the greatest of respect, I'm suggesting that the Lord hire a better marketing agency. Maybe the firm that came up with those great ads using the Blue Man Group. They're delightfully quirky. Not underpass gritty.

Please don't stand so close to me. I'm expecting a lightning strike any second now.
