What I like about this list is that it is full of common sense (a rare
commodity these days). What is refreshing is that when one of us sees
something that is beyond the realm of common sense, they will stand up
and say 'that is really dumb!' For want of a better term, let us call
them the 'dumb' police or the common sense police.
One of the reasons that some really rules and policies come into force
is that folks who know better fail to stand up and say 'that's really
dumb!' The only thing that will keep us on the even keel of
reality is the folks out there, like those on this list, who have the
nerve to stand up and call dumb, dumb and stupid, stupid.
Lets keep on applying the 'dumbness' test and not be afaid to tell
it like it is. Who wants to join me in being a founding member of
the 'dumb' police?
