DANIEL 1: From Mystery to Revelation
Just for once, it was nice to be in charge.
To you, after all, I am "Nebuchadnezzar -- destroy of nations, King of Babylon, and ruler of the whole stinking universe."
But when the magi show up, they act like I'm just another shlubby -- just another peasant who's ticked-off the gods.
That's why it was so nice to see them sweat -- to see them realize that I was in charge after all.
Yes, it was nice while it lasted . . .
Right up until four of them spoke up.
The good news: they told me what I'd dreamt.
The bad news: they told me what it meant . . .
And it turns out that I'm not in charge, after all.
