Every time I see a person in New York who uses religion as a launching pad for their own special fireworks of crazy, I always think of Flannery O’Connor’s novel Wise Blood, where she describes the preacher as “a waspish old man who had ridden over three counties with Jesus hidden in his head like a stinger.” This particular insane person, a regular on the subway, has a well-thumped bible, a Jamaican accent, and the nuance of a foghorn.
