P. J. O'Rourke

Charles A. Beard

Many of the prophets of Jesus's time were thought to just be mad men, just sort of crazy people who were claiming to channel the divine.

For my senior prom, my father finally said I could go - as long as I was home by 9 P.M.! That was around the time that most people were heading out.
