Ignorance -

 

In The Tao of Willie, is this quote:

If English was good enough for Jesus Christ,
it ought to be good enough for the children of Texas."


- Ma Ferguson, 
former governor of Texas


I decided I needed some background on a quote like that, so went to Wikipedia.  It seems the idea may not have originated with her, but there are people who believe Jesus spoke English.  Oh, my!   And then I think of Chaucer's Old English.   Have you ever tried to read that, and that was 1400 years after the birth of Christ, and, and, and, it boggles the mind.
