A little boy wanted $100 very badly; his mother told him to pray to God 
for it.  He prayed for two weeks but nothing turned up.  Then he decided 
perhaps he should write God a letter requesting the $100.  When the post 
office received the letter addressed to God, they opened it and decided 
to send it to the President.

The President was so impressed, touched and amused that he instructed
his secretary to send the little boy $5.  He thought this would appear 
to be a lot of money to a little boy.  The little boy was delighted 
with the $5 and sat down to write a thank you letter, which read as 

Dear God, 
Thank you very much for sending me the money.  I noticed 
that you had to send it through Washington.  As usual, 
those thieves  deducted $95.
