Way back then when the 'Coalition of the Willing' was being hyped and military preparations were being made, I was in Istanbul.
There was a 'very Christian' American teacher there, and one day she was all in a flutter.
"Oh, oh!" she screeched, "I have to go back to America! There's going to be a war in Iraq! I have to go back!"
"Relax," I said "Iraq is a thousand miles away. You'll be safe here."
"No, no, it's not that," she said "Jesus is coming! I have to go back! I have to be ready when he comes!"
As the absurdity of this sunk in, the only thing I could think to say was "What are you going to do, make him cookies?"
