Is it Ironic?

In my morning Bible reading today, I ran across a verse that instantly became one of my favorites, Proverbs 10:13 -- "Wisdom is found on the lips of him who has understanding, but a rod is for the back of him who is devoid of understanding. " (NKJ) or "Wisdom is found on the lips of the discerning, but a rod is for the back of him who lacks judgement." (NIV)

A few hours later as I attended a reception for a U.S. Senator, in my attempt to shoot pictures over the crowd I and my camera strap promptly swatted the back of the head of a former Texas Speaker of the House. Irony?

(I will point out, however, that I like the former speaker and think he did a good job.)

That's funny.

When I was growing up, my dad's favorite verse was Proverbs 22:15. He liked it best in the Good News Version -- "Children just naturally do silly, careless things, but a good spanking will teach them to behave.” Nice, eh?

Rach -- It's not about being democrat or republican, it's about being smart and efficient, or radically insane.
