    Obituary Of The Late Mr. 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.

    Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend
    more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children,
    are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well intentioned
    but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6 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.

    Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the
    job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly
    children. It declined even further when schools were required to get
    parental consent to administer sun lotion or a band-aid to a student;
    but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted
    to have an abortion.

    Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became
    contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better
    treatment than their victims.

    Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a
    burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

    Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to
    realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in
    her lap, and was promptly 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 his 3 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights,
    Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim. Not many attended his
    funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember
    him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.

    Scott, I was referring to her pms to Bill Wilson and Quartz. They posted her reply by pms instead of on here.
    Would be nice Quartz. I asked got Bob to put the issue next tp patterns and he said something about real estate. He found a way to do it and didn’t lose any real estate. Guess they don’t...

    I would be pleased if FC at least did a trial of printing A pattern on regular sized text and also providing a scale up factor. Their resistance to do anything if a real pain. It was a similar lack of action with the website that resulted in lost viewers.

    I think Kelly did that because I wrote a letter to the editor complaining about an article in the last addition. It was the article about staying connected online and it didn't mention the FC forum....

    The fastest I've ever seen one of those 3d deer cuts was by Rick Hutcheson. That man was super fast when we was working the shows.

    Here he is much more recently, and a bit slower: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riPDY6M-Lv8
