Little Lisa Carmalucci was so heartbroken not to have a full nativity scene. Most of the Catholics think stringing blue lights around half a bathtub with Mary in it is decoration enough. Why they would need to steal a kneeling Mary - well, it brings to mind hideous reasons. Mayor, I pray to our LORD that one day I can reside in your halcyon village.
We would be delighted to have you as a citizen of Freehold, Mrs. Lamb.
Your obvious committment to Jesus would be an asset to our City on a Hill.
We have suffered no thefts of Marys or Jesuses since our full scale effort to keep out theives from the Des Moines Housing Project. It's residents are, if I may say it delicately, not like us.
