Jesus’ Triumphal Entry: Not in Palm Beach

Our Lord wept over Jerusalem, but what about this:

My last Palm Sunday piece concerned the custom of the palm crosses at Bethesda-by-the-Sea.  Evidently it’s just as well Bethesda stuck with palm crosses; a real triumphal entry into Palm Beach would have been met, not by the Pharisees, but the Palm Beach police.  And it would have been about the donkey.

Or would it?  Maybe the parable about the rich man and Lazarus is just too much for the place…
