The Decline and Fall of Common Sense

In yet another assault on the out-moded notion of common sense, a school district suspended a student for bringing along a cub scout implement a kid was proud of---and eager to share with his friends.

I shudder to think what this country will be like in another decade or two, unless we find a way to shake off our fear of the world...and embrace life, rather than cowering in some corner, so afraid of each passing shadow that we miss the show.

JEFFREY CAMINSKY, a veteran public prosecutor in Detroit, Michigan, specializes in the appellate practice of criminal law and writes on a wide range of topics. His books include the science fiction adventure novel The Star Dancers, the exciting second volume in the Guardians of Peace-tm series, The Sonnets of William Shakespeare, and the acclaimed Referee’s Survival Guide, a book on soccer officiating. All are published by New Alexandria Press, and are available on Amazon, as well as directly from the publisher.
