"Choose my instruction rather than silver, and knowledge rather than pure gold. For wisdom is far more valuable than rubies. Nothing you desire can compare with it."
-- Proverbs 8:10-11
This is why I read. Below are links to the very best I've found online. I share them because I believe they have given me what is more more valuable than gold or rubies: wisdom. I hope you'll find them of value as well. Articles: Kim on Africa Fred on Cuba Fred on Asia F. Sanders on Capitalism, Socialism, Libertarianism, & God Fred on Democracy Books: Gary on Money Gary on Conspiracy Ben-Hur (the novel, in pdf) I will add more as I remember/find them.
