Ο πολιτισμός πενθεί.......(στα Αγγλικά για τους ξένους φίλους)
Today we mourn the passing of an old friend, by the name of Common Sense. Common Sense lived a long life but died from heart failure on the brink of
the millennium. No one really knows how old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He selflessly devoted his life
to service in schools, hospitals, homes, factories and offices, helping folks get jobs done without fanfare and foolishness. For decades, petty rules,
silly laws and frivolous lawsuits held no power over Common Sense. He was credited with cultivating such valued lessons as to "Know when to come in
out of the rain," "The early bird gets the worm," and "Life isn't always fair." Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't
spend more than you earn), reliable parenting strategies (the adults are in charge, not the kids), and it's okay to come in second.
A veteran of the Industrial Revolution, the Great Depression, and the Technological Revolution, Common Sense survived cultural and educational trends
including body piercing, whole language and "new math." But his health declined when he became infected with the
In recent decades his waning strength proved no match for the ravages of overbearing regulations. He watched in pain as good people became ruled by
self-seeking lawyers. His health rapidly deteriorated when schools endlessly implemented zero tolerance policies, reports of six year old boys charged
with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate, a teen suspended for taking a swig of mouthwash after lunch, and a teacher fired for reprimanding an
unruly student. It declined even further when schools had to get parental consent to administer aspirin to a student but cannot inform the parent when
the female student is pregnant or wants an abortion.
Finally, Common Sense lost his "will to live" as the Ten Commandments became contraband, churches became businesses, criminals received better
treatment than victims, and federal judges stuck their noses in everything from Boy Scouts to professional sports. Finally a woman who was stupid
enough not to realise that coffee is hot and was awarded a huge pay-out caused Common Sense to finally throw in the towel. As the end neared, Common
Sense drifted in and out of logic but was kept informed of developments, regarding questionable regulations for asbestos, low flow toilets, bicycle
helmets and mandatory air bags.
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 realised he was gone.
