Mark, I beseech you, the egregious mistake which you commit, in supposing that nations created kings not for the maintenance of justice, but for the enjoyment of pleasure.

I didn't know Scotland had a King Mark.

This observation reminds me of something that happened to a relative of mine, named Mark. A girl he was interested in was seeking spiritual guidance as to whether or not to date him. Then she read "Mark the perfect man" (Psalm 37:37) in her KJV and that settled the matter. Unsurprisingly, it did not take long for the relationship to crash and burn.
