Ben­e­fit of clergy

Evo - - INBOX -

Ted Kravitz (col­umn, evo 238) might find it re­fresh­ing to cadge a lift with some of my brothers and sis­ters in the clergy if he thinks that their ut­ter­ances while be­hind the wheel would be fit for pub­lic broad­cast. While they lack his flu­ency in ma­tri­ar­chal Yid­dish ex­ple­tives, their driv­ing com­men­tary can ben­e­fit not just from An­gloSaxon, but also He­brew, Greek, Latin, sev­en­teenth- cen­tury English, and a smat­ter­ing of clas­si­cal quo­ta­tions.

Saint Christo­pher is the pa­tron of trav­ellers, but some pre­fer to turn to Jehu, son of Nimshi, whom the Bi­ble tells us drives like a ma­niac (2 Kings 9:20). The Revd David Baver­stock, Liver­pool
