A Crowning at the Capital Creates a Stir

As a shining symbol of democracy, the United States capital is not ordinarily a place where coronations occur. So news that the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, the eccentric and exceedingly wealthy Korean-born businessman, donned a crown in a Senate office building and declared himself the Messiah while members of Congress watched is causing a bit of a stir.

Now that I know the Washington Times is owned by the crowned Messiah, I guess I'll start reading it more seriously. (Though, curiously, this important beltway event seems to have slipped by its notice. Instead: "Clinton's book fails to appeal to heartland".)
