An 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 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.
>
> 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.
