Another Look at the Fat Man

Several of you have asked about the Fat Man. Amongst other things, he was enamoured of the spirit of the child. In fact, he was as much of a child, a little child, a little tiny child, as he was a Fat Man. In a way of putting it, one might say he was a little tiny Fat Man, or perhaps a great fat little tiny child. He knew that the fatter he was, the smaller he was. He knew that his fatness was a declaration against the Manichees, and he knew that his littleness was a proclamation against the moderns. He knew that he was one of those that a Greater One had invited to be suffered to come unto Him.
