"sound and prudent judgment based on a simple perception of the situation or facts"
Are people using their common sense when they want to:
Burn the Koran?
Build a mosque at the spot where Muslims killed Americans?
Protest at the funerals of soldiers? (Just what I wanted to explain to my children a couple of Sundays ago as we drove home from church)
Hire a bicycle coordinator for a city that is going bankrupt? (This one is quite specific to Omaha but I am finding it highly annoying!!)
You may have the freedom to do these things but that doesn't make it RIGHT!!
Common sense...what most people in the news these days seem to be lacking.
