Years ago,the minister would arrange for a donkey to be in front of the
church every Palm Sunday so the little kids, who normally would never see
such a creature in the flesh, as it were, would know what Jesus rode into
Jerusalem on. Then when he came over for his Thursday afternoon martini with
mother and me, I asked him why he did that. Weren't there enough jackasses
in the church already?
