THERE ARE GOOD AND BAD MEDIUMS. A MEDIUM CAN INVADE THE BODY OF A

Motifs added by TRD

Possible combination spoof on the saying "God is Alive and Well and Living in your Heart," while the Argentina reference may refer to the British Foriegn Office's response to the requested extradition of Adolph Eichmann: ("Eichmann is alive and well and living in Argentina")
