born-again (was Christian suggestion)

     True story.  A friend of mine who was a social worker in Texas
overheard this interchange between a Texan client and a newly arrived
social worker from New York.  The client says:  "Are you lost or are you
found?"  The truly puzzled newcomer to the land of born-again Christians
replied without missing a beat:  "I'm from New York."
     I'm from New York via northern Illinois, so I have no idea whether
lost and found are common terms for unsaved and saved, but I think it's a
great story.  It sounds apocryphal, but my friend swears on the Bible
that it's true.
