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 lost in bureaucratic red tape long ago.

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..., all 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 an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live when Churches
became businesses; and criminals began to
receive 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, launched
a lawsuit and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Holy Bible
Common Sense was preceded in death by -
his Parents, Truth & Trust, and his Wife, Discretion.
