 An Obituary Printed in the London Times

An  Obituary printed in the London Times…..Absolutely Dead Brilliant!!t 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 5 stepchildren; 
–  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
