Funeral in real life makes writer focus on Easter

(Reminder: I don't write the headlines -- somebody at the newspaper does -- and I sure wouldn't have written this one. --Mike H.)

Following is a "Just wondering" that was cut from this column in the newspaper:

Just wondering how many Amarillo College employees were inspired by Christmas e-mails from the late Lisa Cherry, who was an AC regent. Here’s an excerpt from her message of Dec. 14, 2005:
“Greetings, Merry Christmas, and may the miracle of Christmas fill your hearts with peace and happiness. It is my prayer that God will bless you and your families with a wonderful, healthy and successful New Year. As I look back over 2005, I see the faces and families of many miracles among the staff. …
“Be safe and do not forget to breathe in and breathe out.”
She added a reference to Psalm 91:11, which says, “The Lord will command his angels to take good care of you.”

Horse in corner was the worst

Thanks to all who have commented on this column about the fire. I've received the most feedback ever, either online or in person, on this column. (Part of the reason was that it was the first "Faith" column to appear on the front page of the newspaper!) --Mike H.

Anne Rice does good job depicting Jesus as a boy

The original column had the following paragraph at the end. It was cut in the newspaper:
Alluding to her vampire novels, Rice calls Jesus “the ultimate supernatural hero, the ultimate outsider, the ultimate immortal of them all.” But in this first book, he is just a puzzled little Jewish boy seeking his destiny.
