Dear friend, if bad companions tempt you,
don’t go along with them.
Oh, friend, don’t give them a second look;
don’t listen to them for a minute.
They’re racing to a very bad end,
hurrying to ruin everything they lay hands on.
Proverbs 1:8-19 (approx)
Colleen sent me a remarkable news snippet yesterday titled “Flaming relapse — convicted drunk driver’s naked joyride with hooker,” which begins:
James Boppre broke all the rules of house arrest when he went for a late-night drive in his pickup truck last month.
He did not observe his curfew.
He did not remain sober.
He did not keep the peace.
And as he crashed into a Kitchener car lot — driving naked while speeding, drunk, high on crack cocaine and next to a naked prostitute — he was not being of good behaviour.
You can read the remainder of the article at The Record, but really this clip summarizes the whole thing fabulously. If you’re gonna break parole, might as well go whole hog, eh?
