What Is Greater than God?
They say the real difference between the serious traveler and a mere tourist is that the tourist just wants to be entertained, while the traveler learns something from his journey.
Here's something I learned from the kid who works in the kitchen at the none-too-fancy hotel where we're staying in Orlando, Fla. Somehow my sister kind of made friends with him. He seems like a bright kid, with a good attitude. This is the question he posed to us:
What is greater than God, but worse than the devil?
The rich don't need it, but the poor have plenty of it.
And if you eat it, you die.
It's an old-fashioned riddle. Know the answer? The wise-beyond-his-years answer will be in the Comments box.
