Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

How's that again?

Last night, our local Chamber of Commerce celebrated their 50th anniversary with quite the gala celebration. Bruce and Greg are members, and were also responsible for making sure that the technology for the evening remained up and functional throughout all the presentations and such; so we were in attendance. It was a lovely evening-- black tie optional, so I was as dressed up as I've been in a very long while. People were pleasant, and the food was great, and we were there with some longtime friends, so it made for a good evening (even if we did have to leave early because I was preaching this morning).

However, I did notice a trend in the speechifying that. . . well, see for yourself:
  • "It's great to have this beautiful Ale House so convenient to our homes and schools!"
  • "We're fortunate to have 10 of our past presidents with us this evening, all of whom are still alive."
No, I'm not making this up.

The question is, were all 10 of them still alive at the end of the evening? A statement like that one knda makes you think a few might be at the brink.
