  1. An Obituary printed in the London Times.....Absolutely Brilliant !!

    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 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 5 stepbrothers;
    - I Know My Rights
    - I Want It Now
    - Someone Else Is To Blame
    - I'm A Victim
    - Pay me for Doing Nothing


    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.
