Christmas eve, we went with my family to our family church for the service, which features the singing of carols and general warm fuzziness. In the “meditation” before we got to the carol part, the minister made this observation: “Christians always sing when they get themselves into trouble.”

My first thought? “So I should be sure not to have any Christians on my next bank heist team.”

Um, yeah, when he said “sing,” he probably wasn’t referring to the jargon for ratting out a co-conspirator. I should perhaps think about something other than law for a while.
