The "Public Enemy" Guide to Life

I think we can all agree that some movies offer great life lessons that we can tuck into our memory banks and carry with us, like loose change in our pockets or maybe lint, as we traverse through this unpredictable and awesome thing called life. I have found, for example, that the 1931 film "The Public Enemy" is stuffed like crazy with wisdom, and I can say without fear of contradiction that everything I need to know I learned from ... well, see for yourself.

Get regular exercise. 

No spanking unless its consensual.

Be open to surprises.

Be respectful.

Encourage your loved ones to make healthy food choices.

Cultivate an appreciation for music.

Again -- no spanking unless it's consensual. 

Be kind to your mother.

And finally -- always celebrate Halloween.
