    Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend,
    >>
    >> Mr. Common Sense.
    >> Mr. Sense had been with us for many years.
    >>
    >> No one knows for sure how old
    >> he was since his birth records were long ago
    >>
    >> lost in bureaucratic red tape.
    >>
    >>
    >> He will be remembered as having cultivated
    >>
    >> such value lessons as knowing
    >> when to come in out of the rain,
    >>
    >> why the early bird gets the worm and
    >> that life isn't always fair.
    >>
    >>
    >>
    >> Common Sense lived by simple,
    >>
    >> sound financial policies
    >>
    >> (don't spend more than you earn)
    >>
    >> and reliable Parenting strategies
    >>
    >> (adults, not kids, are in charge).
    >>
    >> His health began to rapidly deteriorate
    >>
    >> when well intentioned but
    >> overbearing regulations were set in place.
    >>
    >>
    >>
    >> Reports of a six-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 condition.
    >>
    >> Mr. Sense declined even further when
    >>
    >> schools were required to get parental consent
    >>
    >> to administer aspirin to a student;
    >>
    >> but, could not inform the parents when a student
    >>
    >> became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
    >>
    >> Finally, Common Sense lost the will to live
    >>
    >> as the Ten Commandments became contraband;
    >>
    >> churches became businesses;
    >>
    >> and criminals received better treatment
    >>
    >> than their victims.
    >>
    >> Common Sense finally gave up the ghost
    >>
    >> after a woman failed to realize that a
    >>
    >> steaming cup of coffee was hot,
    >>
    >> she spilled a bit in her lap,
    >> and was awarded a huge financial settlement.
    >>
    >> Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust,
    his
    >> wife, Discretion;
    >>
    >> his daughter, Responsibility;
    >>
    >> and his son, Reason.
    >>
    >> He is survived by two stepbrothers;
    >>
    >> My Rights and Ima Whiner.
    >> Not many attended his funeral because
    >>
    >> so few realized he was gone.
