The reports of my birth
are greatly exaggerated.

And thus it came to pass that Joseph did leaveth the stable and drowned his sorrows in newly wined water. :lol:

David,

Very witty! Like an epigram. "exaggerated", great word. This brought to my mind - will the young people say something opposite like:

The reports of my birth
are greatly minimized.

No, they won't for they don't have David's wisdom.

All the best,

Lake

Without meaning any level of offence, it strikes me there is opportunity to consider the reports of rebirth as well.

Part of an interview I assume, or just a brush with some paps when leaving string fellows. Maybe it was a leak from his press office. The Jesus that speaks here is a new Jesus, but one born on the page all the same: a Tabloid religion
