Quickies: Lenten Advice From On High?

     Two days ago, a truck hauling 17 tons of chocolate went up in flames:

     KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A tractor-trailer fire closed southbound I-35 past 119th Street for about a half-hour Tuesday morning....

     The big rig, which was hauling 34,000 pounds of chocolate, was on the right shoulder of the highway.

     As the esteemed Charles Hill of Dustbury put it, “It could be worse, but not much.”

     Well, we just got to see “worse:”

     It wasn't a happy hour for some central Florida drivers when trucks carrying Busch beer and Frito Lay chips collided, spilling them both along Interstate 95....

     The Frito Lay truck overturned. The beer and chips spilled onto the highway. Traffic backed up as troopers closed the road while clearing the debris.

     Clearly, God’s trying to tell us something. Probably that next year we should take Lent more seriously.
