Lord, Wherefore Art Thou?

A Kansas man was taken to hospital for "mental evaluation" after police found a week-old corpse in his apartment. He said he was "praying for divine intervention to bring his fiancee back to life."

So in Kansas, a citizen prays for divine intervention : lunatic asylum ... but in Texas, a state prays for divine intervention : cost-effective government.
