  1. Mr. Common Sense

    London Times Obituary of the late Mr. Common Sense
    > Date: Sunday, May 4, 2008, 5:29 PM
    > 'Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who
    > has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he/she was,
    > since birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. Common sense
    > will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
    > Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the
    > worm; Life isn't always fair; and maybe it was my fault.
    > Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more
    > than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in
    > charge).
    > His/her health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but
    > overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy
    > charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended
    > from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for
    > reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his/her condition.
    > Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the
    > job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly
    > children.
    > It declined even further when schools were required to get parental
    > consent to administer sun lotion or an Aspirin to a student; but could
    > not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an
    > abortion.
    > Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses;
    > and criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common
    > Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in
    > your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
    > Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to
    > realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in
    > her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
    > Common Sense was preceded in death by his/her parents, Truth and Trust; his
    > wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He
    > is survived by his 4 step brothers -I Know My Rights, I Want It Now,
    > Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim.
    > Not many attended his/her funeral, because so few realized he/she was gone. If
    > you still remember him/her, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do
    > nothing.'
