    church goers but I would go to church with my dear old grandma. The best part was that she would take me to Ray's Cafe for a cheeseburger and a chocolate malt after church. Oh, and she let me put the dime in the offering plate. I kind of liked doing that. But the cheeseburger at Ray's was worth sitting through the service, which I found pretty boring.

    It didn't take, though. I can identify with this line from the Bruce Beresford movie, Breaker Morant]. It is a dialog between Morant and one of his soldiers as the executioners are preparing to stand them before a firing squad.

    Sentry: Do you want the padre?
    Harry Morant: No, thank you. I'm a pagan.
    Sentry: And you?
    Peter Handcock: What's a pagan?
    Harry Morant: Well... it's somebody who doesn't believe there's a divine being dispensing justice to mankind.
    Peter Handcock: I'm a pagan, too.
