Comment: Re: SHK 14.0766 Dicky number too
To B. Z. "Bub" Hall:
When Jesus of Nazareth spent 40 days in the wilderness, he probably
wasn't waiting for a bus.
(But, says the demonic-looking gnome in the next office but one, the bus
was waiting for him. And its number was 666, says his crony, the
gargoyle, snickering. They have the nastiest laughs, the two of them,
but they do seem to enjoy life a great deal.)
"Therefore, friends, As far as to the sepulchre of Christ, Whose soldier
now, under whose blessed cross We are impressed and engaged to fight,
Forthwith a power of English shall we levy; Whose arms were moulded in
their mothers' womb To chase these pagans in those holy fields Over
whose acres walk'd those blessed feet Which fourteen hundred years ago
were nail'd For our advantage on the bitter cross."
(Not a political statement by any means)
I, for one, miss terribly Easter egg rolling on the White House lawn.
