>Funeral services for Pastor Bob were scheduled for this morning, with

>The avenging angel who responded to Pastor Bob's invocation of God's

>At the revival service's emotional peak, Pastor Bob called upon God
>to strike dead Mr. Ray Ray, a successful local business man whose
>extra-marital conquests reportedly included Pastor Bob's own wife,
>Camelia, two of Camelia's older sisters, three of Camelia's older

>Pastor Bob's first wife by marriage. Yet when the tipsy angel rose

>At press time, the avenging angel whose aim was tragically off the
