The Bible and the newspaper

...but these men lie in wait for their own blood;
They set an ambush for their own lives.

Proverbs 1

Theologian Karl Barth famously advised his students to "take your Bible and take your newspaper, and read both, but interpret newspapers from your Bible." (Time)

I was reminded of that quote as I read about this WPB crime that transpired a stones throw from million-dollar condos and pricey private schools. "Wisdom cries aloud in the street," but the scoffer still refuses to listen.
