The Youth Groups of St. Aquila Lutheran Church will be holding a fund-raising talent show Monday evening at 7 p.m. Since Lutheran principles do not allow them to charge money for this event, and since Mrs. Woodstock, the council president, has decided that passing a collection plate would be “tacky,” the young people are hoping that the audience will be engrossed in the doings on stage while acolytes pass among them and pick their pockets. Come see the stars of the future!

    Collection plates do tend to become especially “tacky” during cold and flu season….

    Dear Dr. Boli,

    I was recently shocked and horrified by a recent news story about the defeat of Her Majesty’s forces by the Zulu nation at the Battle of Isandlwana. Some unscrupulous newsmen have blamed the loss on a number of dutiful quartermasters who refused to distribute ammunition to their fellow soldiers without the proper requisition forms. In this civilized age, with an empire that stretches across the globe, why can the British military not devise a method for providing a suitable number of requisition forms for the Queen’s men?
