The Loss of Gideon’s Bible


Traveling today I found myself searching for a Gideon’s Bible in the hotel room drawer.  Coming to my senses I suddenly felt old.  Yes, I could look up anything I wanted from the Bible on my computer, but still, I would have preferred a Gideon’s.  In the long list of things we have lost or will likely be losing due to the internet, I suspect you can add Gideon’s Bible’s to the list.  Which leaves me to wonder how in the world coming generations will ever comprehend these lines from the Beatles’ Rocky Raccoon:  “And Rocky Raccoon, checked into his room, only to find Gideon’s Bible…..  Gideon checked out, and he left it no doubt, to help with good Rocky’s revival.”

I guess that’s what us old folks are left around for.
