The Georgia Fraternal Order of Police holds an annual contest for the most unusual excuse offered by people caught speeding. Daniel Fogarty carted off the top prize one year. The excuse? A man had explained his speeding as an effort to lose weight. Another offered: “I was in church when they started to pass the plate and I realized I didn’t have my wallet. I’m trying to make it home and back before the collection is over.” The Lord once told a parable about excuse-makers and not one of the excuses they offered was worth hearing. There are a thousand excuses for not doing what is right, but not one reason. This is Just-A-Minute.
