Charlie Brown stands on the pitcher's mound and stares at the field. He says, "Nine home runs in a row!! Good grief!"<BR><BR> He throws his head back and wails, "What can I do?!!"<BR><BR> Schroeder stands below him on the slope of the mound. Charlie Brown  He opens his arms, and says, "We're getting slaughtered again, Schroeder...I don't know what to do..why do we have to suffer like this?"<BR><BR> "'Man is born to trouble as the sparks fly upward.'" Schroeder quotes as he walks away. Linus stands behind Charlie Brown, who says, "What?"<BR><BR> Charlie Brown turns to face Linus, who lifts his arm and explains, "He's quoting from the 'Book of Job,' Charlie Brown...seventh verse, fifth chapter...."<BR><BR> Linus raises his arms and continues, "Actually, the problem of suffering is a very profound one, and..." Lucy stands beneath them on the ground, shaking her fist as she announces, "If a person has bad luck, it's because he's done something wrong, that's what I always say!"<BR><BR> Lucy stands in front of Charlie Brown, and faces Schroeder, who begins, "That's what Job's wife told him, but I doubt if.." "What about Job's wife?" I don't think she gets enough credit!" Lucy adds. Five stands in the background.<BR><BR> "I think a person who never suffers, never matures...suffering is actually very important..." Shroeder says to Patty. "Who wants to suffer? Don't be ridiculous!" declares Lucy, raising her arms. Charlie Brown stands in the middle, looking back and forth as the argument ensues. Five offers, "But pain is a part of life, and.." Linus says to Snoopy and another kid, "A person who speaks only of the 'patience' of Job reveals that he knows very little of the book! Now, the way I see it..."<BR><BR> Charlie Brown stands alone on the pitcher's mound. He says, "I don't have a ball team..I have a theological seminary!"<BR><BR>
