<< I'm familiar with the area where this happened, people around here jokingly
it 'heathen ridge' because of the cult like holiness movement there.
The Rev. John Wayne "Punkin" Brown Jr., 34, of
Parrottsville, Tenn., died Saturday night while handling
a four-foot timber rattlesnake during a sermon,
preaching on for a quarter-hour after he was bitten. His
wife died of a snake bite three years ago.
Maybe the first husband/wife Darwin Award recipients!
