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.
