The Bible and the locusts

Last night I watched the new History Channel series, The Bible, and thoroughly enjoyed it, from the Irish-sounding Noah telling the story of the creation in the middle of the flood, to the ninja angels,

to the very awesome (in the old meaning of the word, “inspiring an overwhelming feeling of reverence, admiration, or fear”) Moses.

As you may recall, locusts were one of the plagues of Egypt. Lo and behold, here’s the Drudge headline this morning, right on time for Passover,

In case you want to blame that on the sequester, Kerry frees up $250M in U.S. aid to Egypt.

    Hubs kept yelling at the TV, “That’s not in the Bible!” until I reminded him it wasn’t a football game.

    Yes. I particularly minded the Moses-finds-out-he’s-adopted part. Moses was raised by his own birth mother in the Pharao’s court.
    But the ninja angels? They were great.
