Mark of a Beastly Job
Being identified with the number 666 ("mark of the beast" in the Bible's Book of Revelation) continues to trouble the righteous. Walter Slonopas, 52, felt he had to resign as a maintenance worker for Contech Casting in Clarksville, Tenn., in February after receiving his W-2 form, which he noted was the 666th mailed out by Contech this year. Maybe Slonopas isn't innocent. He'd been working for Contech for less than two years, yet had already been "assigned" the number 666 twice — on the company's payroll books and the time-clock system.
