The joys of being Isaiah the prophet

Tradition says that Isaiah the prophet was murdered by being sawn in half inside a hollowed-out log on orders from King Manasseh. We presume this was before Manny repented of being a wicked king and became a born-again upstanding monarch. Perhaps he just grew tired of Isaiah’s prophecies of how wickedness would be judged.

Isaiah’s words remind me of the nondescript FBI agent in the hilarious movie Midnight Run who has to deliver bad news to the tall, imposing Agent Alonso Mosley (played brilliantly by Yaphet Kotto). Mosley is eating lunch at a diner when he’s told they were unable to capture bounty hunter Jack Walsh and government witness Jonathan “The Duke” Mardukas…

FBI agent: I have some news for you about Walsh and the Duke.

Mosley: Is it going to upset me?

Agent: Yes, sir, I think it’s safe to say it will.
