from The Daily Press, Newport News, VA, p.C2, Dec. 30, 1996: GOD'S WILL: At least 25 religious pilgrims drowned in November when an overcrowded ship sank in the Acara River in northern Brazil; the boat was headed to the town of Acara to cerebrate the Virgin of Nazareth. And, in August, at least 113 pilgrims, nude and smeared with ash, died in a snowstorm in the Himalayas as they were en route to worship a stalagmite believed to be the phallus of the god Shiva.
