    It's a difficult fragrance to describe. Breathing is difficult as he gets closer, due to the gag reflex when the body senses something toxic. It is 'rutting' season for goats. Buckwheat is the dominant male of Mathura's herd. To make himself attractive to the ladies he is urinating all over himself. The smell is overpowering and I am grateful for the fence that keeps us apart. He will either breed or fight with any animal that comes his way. There is one thing on his mind.

    Dallas Morning News, Each week we will post a question to a panel of about two dozen clergy, laity and theologians, all of whom are based in Texas or are from Texas. They will chime in with their responses to the question of the week. And you, readers, will be able to respond to their answers through the comment box. A tip of the hat to Daniel Kanter for this question. He sent along a link about New York University President John Sexton’s book, Baseball as a Road to God. Sexton has taught...
