Lord, a dead-end job in a backwater town...no hope in sight. The rabbi says King David started out this way, hard to believe. Maybe shepherds weren't considered to be the lowest of the low back then.

I really wanted to be an athlete when I was a kid. And I worked at it as hard as I could. Even the PE teacher said I was doing everything right when it came to basketball.
