    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 the churches became businesses and 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 4 stepbrothers:
    I Know My Rights
    I Want It Now
    Someone Else Is To Blame
    I'm A Victim

    Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.

    I remember, back in the '70s, hunting along a power line right of way and came across a sign attached to one of the power poles that said; "IT IS UNLAWFUL TO REMOVE THIS SIGN", and nothing more. I took it!

    Remember the old roller style hand towel dispensers? Every Men's room had them. I knew we were at the end of common thought when I saw a warning back in the mid 80's that cautioned against getting your neck caught in the roll. Seriously?! If you were that stupid, ... well then thinning the heard might be a good thing!

    One of the food safety laws here in England, states I have to provide info on all of the 14 major food allergens that may be in dishes served in my menus.

    So yes it does actually warn the customers the garlic prawns do contain prawns !

    Woman troubles, bizarre phobia about aircraft models and severe depression. But, yes I am on the right side of the lawn!
