Many are preparing for the second coming, but what if they missed one important question? What if the second coming has already happened and we strung him up faster than the Romans did?
In the not too distant future, or perhaps the recent past, a trial took place. This trial was both supreme in its importance, and also nothing in that it passed without notice. Nobody appeared in the courtroom save the defendant, a homeless person dressed in an orange prison jumpsuit; the judge, a man close to retirement that only hopes for an easy day with no real issues; a prosecutor, a man looking to make a name for himself and move up in the world; and a court reporter. Even though countless scores of people claimed to follow the defendant, nobody could be bothered to take the time to be at the trial to act as witness for the defense. The media was nowhere to be seen, they were too busy chasing after the latest starlet scandal. No politician had taken note; they were all set to pandering to a public that continues to ask about the latest titillating details of someone else’s downfall.

Even though it only takes ten minutes to read, this is a great bit of seething satirical social commentary. I won’t write a long review. Your time is better spent reading the book.
