Common sense

09/28/2008 at 9:44 pm (thoughts)

I’ve overheard a lot of folks recently in my store talking about the troubles we’re facing in this country.

Today some older fellow was chatting near to where I was working about the subject. I kept hearing remarks along the lines of young folks lacking “common sense.” I suppose he was blaming the current troubles on that. He said something about “if only common sense was at the reins.”

And I have to admit that I got a bit upset when I heard that.

I wanted to explain to him that it was gravity that is now “at the reins,” but that it was his generation that pushed the cart off the cliff!
