OBITUARY

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 value 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; Illegal aliens got driver's licenses 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, she spilled a bit 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 join the majority and do nothing.

THINK ABOUT IT & DO NOTHING. ITS THE NEW AMERICAN WAY.

NASCAR'S greatest race, the Daytona 500 was correctly billed. Jeff Gordon won his third Daytona 500. An exciting race from start to finish.

The race that the old sign philosopher was most impressed by was his 17 year old nephew the previous night at DuQuoin, Il. Bradley Loyet won the checkered flag in his Ford Focus midget. This was Brad's final race in this series. He will be focusing all his racing in the National Midget series. Good luck, Brad!!!!
