Oh Goodness

From the Associated Press

Reading, PA. (AP) Bail bondsman Paul Sewell doesn't think he's God -- even though he signs his name G-O-D. Election officials in Berks county, Pennsylvania, say Sewell will have to explain why he signed his name ``God'' on his registration form if he wants to vote in the next election. Sewell says ``God'' is his legal mark, like the ``x'' used by people who are illiterate. He says he's signed a credit card and his driver's license with ``God.'' He claims it's legal. But why God? Sewell says whenever he arrests a bail jumper they say, ``Oh, God, give me another chance. Oh, God, let me go.''
