>> Obituary printed in the London Times - Interesting and
>> sadly, rather true. 
>> 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 was, since his birth records were long ago lost
>> in bureaucratic red tape. He 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 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 kiss ing a classmate; teens suspended from
>> school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired
>> for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his
>> 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
>> parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion, by his
>> daughter, Responsibility, and by his son, Reason. 
>> He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers; 
>> I Know My Rights 
>> I Want It Now 
>> Someone Else Is To Blame 
>> I'm A Victim 
>> Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he
>> was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not,
>> join the majority and do nothing.
