John Baptist must have been given his name to keep him out of mischief. The jury is still out on whether this has worked. He aims not to be consistent with what he has said in the past, but only with what his heart says is right in the present (works perfectly as an exclusion clause too!). He believes that he has been tarred with the same brush of imperfection as his fellow human beings, perhaps only more. He finds birds worth emulating-never gathering for the future, living only for the moment, ever ready at any occasion to sing gratefully to their Maker, building temporary homes sans foundation upon the earth and ever ready to take to the skies. He believes that we need to give up our wants so that others can have their needs. He wants an expansive, liberal and life-breathing Federal Constitution.
