    Obituary

    This remind anyone of anything?
    I received this in an e-mail and thought I would pass it on to the community.

    Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend by the name of 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 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 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 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 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, 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 his son, Reason. He is
    survived by two stepbrothers; My Rights and Ima Whiner. Not many attended
    his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still know him,
    pass this on; if not, you can give him a second death.

    I have a question; are you the bug, or the windshield?
