First Name Derrick?

I worked for 22 years in the industrial overhead lifting business, where their last names had similar meanings. As a result, I have found it amusing to conflate Elmer Gantry with Ichabod Crane. I never read the book or saw the movie about the first of these but I find this so absolutely spot on that, even with Dean Jagger and Shirley Jones in the cast, I find myself tempted to check the videocassette out of the library. Never have I seen the similarity between religous and environmental fanaticisms raised more damningly.
