Proverbs, Chapter 22

A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches (v. 1). We'll see if that is true if the next candidate for US President from the Republican Party turns out to be a birther.

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. (v. 6) I would agree with this, if the entire rest of the book didn't think the way to do this was beating them with rods until they stop crying, like verse 15 Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.

People that god doesn't like will be lead astray by foreign women. I guess god hates everybody in Amsterdam. Don't be friends with angry people or you'll become one, too. That's actually really good advice. Also people who want to tell you about their health problems or who get tattoos of their kids. And probably vegans and evangelical Christians.

Finally, don't tear down landmarks. I'm looking at you Moscow. And Beijing.
