    In Washington an old priest lay dying in the hospital. For years he had
    faithfully served the people of the nation's capital. He motioned for his
    nurse to come near.

    "Yes, Father?" said the nurse.

    "I would really like to see Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi before I
    die", whispered the priest.

    "I'll see what I can do, Father", replied the nurse.

    The nurse sent the request to The House and Senate waited for a response.

    Soon the word arrived; Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi would be delighted to
    visit the priest.

    As they went to the hospital, Reid commented to Pelosi,

    "I don't know why the old priest wants to see us, but it will
    certainly help our images and might even get me re-elected."

    Pelosi agreed that it was a good thing.

    When they arrived at the priest's room, the priest took Reid's hand in his
    right hand and Pelosi's hand in his left.

    There was silence and a look of serenity on the old priest's face.

    Finally Nancy Pelosi spoke.

    "Father, of all the people you could have chosen, why did you choose us to
    be with you as you near the end?"

    The old priest slowly replied, "I have always tried to pattern my life after
    Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ."

    "Amen", said Reid.
    "Amen", said Pelosi.

    The old priest continued, "Jesus died between two lying thieves; I would
    like to do the same."
