We mourn the passing of a beloved old friend by the name of Common Sense who had been with us for many years. No one knows how old he was because his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valued 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 reliabe parenting strategies (adults, not kids,are in charge). His health began to deteriorate raidly 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 usung mouthwash after lunch, and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student only worsened his condition. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer asprin 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, spilled it in her lap, and was awarded a huge settlement. Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust, his wife Discretion, his daughter Responsibility, and hs son Reason. His is survived by two stepbrothers, My Rights and Ima Whiner. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he had gone. :-S
