R.I.P. Rev. Ike

The Rev. Frederick J. Eikerenkoetter II, the flamboyant minister better known as the Reverend Ike, who preached the blessings of material prosperity to a large congregation in New York and to television and radio audiences nationwide, died Tuesday in Los Angeles, where he had lived since 2007. He was 74...."Close your eyes and see green," Reverend Ike would tell his 5,000 parishioners from a red-carpeted stage at the former Loew's film palace on 175th Street in Washington Heights, the headquarters of his United Church Science of Living Institute. "Money up to your armpits, a roomful of money and there you are, just tossing around in it like a swimming pool." [NY Times]
Some know that former Loew's as United Palace.

All Points West starts tomorrow.
