MEAL READY TO EAT:

--New York Times, July 20
"Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay a tithe of mint and anise and cumin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the Law, justice, mercy and faith; these you should have done, and not leave the other undone. You blind guides, who strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel"
--Matthew 23:23-24
