It's fairly recent

from a US radio advertising campaign from the 30's I think. It means this is going/has started well - possibly after repeated failed attempts. Popularised by Jack Benny and the like in comedy sketches thereafter.

topical piece captures the futility of getting away from it all, whatever "it" is, it's in our baggage and that's why it's our Facebook and Twitter Pick of the Day.

One or two things. Incognito is one word.
Kirk is almost exclusively used for Church in the Church of Scotland. Your priest(s) are Catholics, I presume, since they practise the rite of Exorcism.

Nice

if you'd asked me 10 years ago about the cathartic benefits of writing, I'd have laughed in your face. How wrong can one be? I suppose the point is it enables you (me, one etc.) to take your feelings outside and examine them, turning them over to...
