As Garry Trudeau, speaking through Zonker, pointed out in yesterday's
strip, Jesus said:

"Of that day and hour knoweth no man, nay, not the angels of heaven,
but My Father only."
-Matthew, 24:36

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
-Mark Twain
