A fire eater performed his act several times a day on the corner near our house. Since we were morally opposed to the consumption of fire, we contacted the police to have the performer removed. Fire eating is not illegal, said the officer. We went to her superior with the same result. We approached several lawyers. None gave us any encouragement. We had no option but to pray. We stood near the fire eater, dropped to our knees, and begged providence to forgive him. The fire eater applauded us. Great act, he said, you should take it on the road.
