If you’re a fan of The Andy Griffith Show, you may remember the episode entitled The Church Benefactors. Recall, an old member of the Church died, and left the Church $500, with the condition that the money be put to practical use. Aunt Bee wanted the money to be used for Choir Robes. Howard Sprague wanted to use the money to fix a structural problem in the Church, whereby, the Church was leaning to the left due to a drainage problem. The committee that made the decision on how to use the money consisted of Andy, the Reverend and Martha Clark. Martha voted for the robes. The Reverend voted to fix the leaning Church. As usual, Andy was left in the position where her was damned if did, and damned if he didn’t. Fortunately, Andy didn’t have to make a decision, because the Church was fixed by flooding the other side, and making it lean and straighten out. Click here is you want to watch the episode.
My point is, if the people on the Andy Griffith were able to figure out how to repair the leaning Church, why hasn’t someone figured out a way to fix the Leaning Tower of Pisa?
