Lions are known to protect their young and to even care for neglected cubs when needed'. In this aspect, I'd say, yet again, March came in like a lion. It's the second part of this proverb that I'm looking forward to the most. If March came in like a lion, it's go- ing out like a lamb. One look at my cal- endar confirms this, as the last days of March this year are Good Friday and the beginning of Passover.
