Death of Common Sense, Indeed Any Sense At All

SEE HERE  Worth thinking about if you can spare a few neurons.  The unbelievable lack of common sense in the United States these days suggests that no-one is getting anything resembling a good education.  How can we be so afraid of our navels as to punish young children because someone's feverish imagination is that a bitten pop-tart looks like a gun?  What's to be so afraid of guns?  Where does that come from?  As my father, a Navy ordnance officer, used to say, the gun is the simplest of all machines.  When he was a kid he made his own gunpowder and blew nails into telephone poles from jury rigged pipes with fuses.  So what is the big deal?
