This is the type of fast that I wish: to loosen the fetters of injustice … to set free those who are oppressed … to share your bread with the hungry, and to offer shelter to the homeless poor, to clothe the naked when you behold them and not turn your back on your own kin.

In last week’s column, I speculated on what personal recollections my wife might share during the “chat” portion of the show “Jeopardy!” if she were a contestant.
