The Passing of Common Sense.

From time to time, as you know I like to re-publish words of wisdom I glean from emails or other sources. This time I saw this item as a comment posting, and since this was the first time I have see this, I will attribute it to: Retired Marine MSgt in Marana, Az.

The Passing of Common Sense.

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.
