Man wants to exorcise Mt. Diablo's name

A deeply religious Oakley man has petitioned the federal government to rename Mount Diablo, calling the current name a profane salute to Satan.
"Words have power, and when you start mentioning words that come from the dark side, evil thrives," said Mijares.

"When I take boys camping on the mountain -- I don't even like to say its name -- I have to explain what the name means. Why should we have a main feature of our community that celebrates the devil?"

Gotta wonder how the folks at The Onion can keep coming to work every day. There isn't much room for parody against such a sea of real-world absurdity.
