Common Sense

I read about the passing of an old friend named Common Sense. He’d been around for a long time and lived by simple financial policies: like not spending more than you earn, reliable parenting strategies where the adults are in charge not the kids, and the notion that it’s OK to come in second. Unfortunately, his health deteriorated as the Ten Commandments became contraband, legal ethics replaced Christian morality and courts of law began awarding damages to people whose own stupidity caused them to get injured. Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion, His daughter, Responsibility and his son, Reason. He is survived by his step-brothers, My Rights and Ima Whiner. Not many people attended his funeral because, so few realized he was gone.
