The story of the smart ass in Numbers 22 is even better. The ass knew or recognized more than Balaam did.
Bill M: I always wondered where the term ‘smartass’ came from.
Bill M, I enjoyed reading Numbers 22. King James version, and a modern NAB translation. lol. Dato, great story. Mike in VA, we seem to be concerned about the same human issues. Thanks for writing about the Patel family. So tragic. By the way, the farm worker in the article and his candid interview with Barry Estabrook is named, Oswaldo Cisneros Martinez.
