One interpretation of the Job story is that it was original meant as a parody. I havent read the book but have read a couple reviews. I think it is an interesting take on the issue.

At least now I know how to format a post and use quote boxes. As I remember it took me while to get the hang of that. I am not sure if I have changed at all. I don't seem to get into fights with creos that gets me suspended anymore. So maybe as I close in on 50, I am mellowing a little.
