You cannot say that everybody's happy. But you can say that everybody is now safe from each other. At least I thought so until a few days ago, when I heard of some mother by the name of Sarah Lafayette whose newborn baby was speaking in the strangest tongue backwards.

A miracle? Some experts had uttered the word: VOODOO
