Dave Wood's Book Report, Nov. 25, 2009

Email

Years ago, my wife and I traveled to Assisi, Italy, for a few days in the town St. Francis made famous.

When we wore out St. Francis, we made our way to St. Clare's church to see the reliquary in its catacomb.

As we waited in a long line, an aged nun swept by me, elbowed me in the groin and took my spot before St. Clare's skull. As I groaned in agony, my wife heard a local tourist tell his wife in Italian "No wonder Americans think we're crazy."
