With Smoot-Hawley, I'd Have Had Less Success

Preaching to the St. John's middle school this morning, I asked the students a question and said, "Anyone?... Anyone?...Anyone?" Then I announced a digression (their favorite part of any preachment) and said, "Who knows what movie that's from?"

About a dozen raised their hands. "'Ferris Bueller's Day Off'," a boy said.

And who says it? Eight raised their hands. "The teacher," a girl said.

And who plays the teacher? A teacher raised her hand. "Ben Stein," she said.

And what president did Ben Stein and I both used to work for? That, they all deduced. Then I came home and spotted this Stein post about his White House years.
