From The Wall Street Journal: Pride Goeth Before the Fall

"We are the modern equivalent of the ancient city-states of Athens and Sparta. California has the ideas of Athens and the power of Sparta,' [Gov. Arnold] Schwarzenegger, who played Hercules in his first film role, told legislators at the capitol. 'Not only can we lead California into the future . . . we can show the nation and the world how to get there.' "--Reuters, Jan. 9

"Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger asked the federal government Tuesday for disaster aid because of an ongoing cold snap that has destroyed nearly $1 billion worth of California citrus. . . . Visiting a Fresno orange grove, Schwarzenegger said he was asking the U.S. government for disaster status, which would allow California to seek aid from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Small Business Administration to offset losses to growers and other businesses."--Associated Press, Jan. 16

That's a misquote, biblical Einstein.

Pride goeth before DESTRUCTION, and a HAUGHTY SPIRIT before a FALL.


It's one thing to be godless atheists, it's another to quote the good book, BADLY! (Or did you presume that was Shakespeare).
