    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 m outhwash 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

    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.
