Louisiana Town Ditches 666 Area Code Over Religious Concerns
The poor residents of Reeves, Louisiana have been saddled with the telephone prefix of the beast since the early 1960's, and Christians in the town have been complaining since. Finally, the constant bellyaching paid off and for the next three months residents will have the option of changing their prefix to 749.
Mayor Scott Walker said it was "divine intervention," though we tend to think the power(s) that be have bigger things to worry about than this town's area code.
