    A man in Topeka, Kansas, decided to write a book about
    churches around the country. He started by flying to
    San Francisco, and started working east from there.
    Going to a very large church, he began taking
    photographs and making notes. He spotted a golden
    telephone on the vestibule wall, and was intrigued
    with a sign that read, "$10,000 per minute."

    Seeking out the pastor, he asked about the phone and
    the sign. The pastor answered that the golden phone
    is, in fact, a direct line to Heaven, and if he pays
    the price, he can talk directly to God.
    The man thanked the pastor and continued on his way.
    As he continued to visit churches in Seattle, Salt
    Lake City, Denver, Chicago, Milwaukee, and around the
    United States, he found more such phones, with the
    same sign, and the same explanation from each pastor.

    Finally, the man arrived in the great state of Texas.
    Upon entering a church, behold: he saw the usual
    golden telephone. But THIS time, the sign read:
    "Calls: 25 cents"!? Fascinated, the man asked to speak
    with the pastor. "Reverend, I have been in cities all
    across the country and in each church I have found
    this golden telephone, and have been told it is a
    direct line to Heaven, and that I could use it to talk
    to God.... But in 20 other churches, the cost was
    $10,000 per minute. Your sign says 25 cents per call.
    ....Why is that? (I just love this part!)

    The pastor, smiling benignly, replied: "Son, you're in
    Texas now! and it's a local call."
