The Prince Of Peace

We've all come to expect ritual crucifixions on Easter weekend. But surely there is something wrong with ritual gorging until a nation's hospitals must tell people to stop flooding the emergency rooms when "a rest at home and drinking plenty of water" is the solution to their gluttony-induced illness. This is as far from the Jesus of the Bible as it is possible to get, is it not? Then again, one Easter egg hunt featured an arrest amid a lot of commotion, a lot of cursing ... the deputy used pepper spray to tame the man, but emphasizes no children were around. Wow! With 25,000 eggs on offer and no children around, you have to wonder what was in those eggs.
