Six White Rabbits for Titus Pullo

In Bishkek,  parliamentarians sacrificed six sheep to drive out the demons promoting dissention in the parliament. OK.  Whatever works. After all, the governor of Texas asked people to pray for rain. He probably should have asked native Americans to perform a ceremony to produce rain (except American religious bigots don't like other belief systems).  Sacrifices, even promises of future ones, worked for Titus Pullo who swore to sacrifice white rabbits to escape execution for striking a senior officer. At least in Bishkek they ate the sheep and distributed some to the poor - something that would never happen in Texas.
