School visit

>John Kerry visits a primary school and sits in on one of the classes,
>>which is in the middle of a discussion on words and their meaning.
>>
>>The teacher asks Mr. Kerry if he would like to lead the discussion of
>>the word "tragedy".
>>
>>So, the illustrious leader asks the class for an example of a "tragedy."
>>
>>One little boy stands up and offers: "If my best friend, who lives on
>>a farm, is playing in the field and a runaway tractor comes along and
>>knocks him dead, that would be a tragedy.
>>
>>"That's wrong," Kerry shouts. "That would be considered an accident."
>>
>>A little girl raises her hand: "If a school bus carrying 50 children
>>drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy."
>>
>>"You are completely incorrect" shouts the Senator. "That would be what
>>we would consider a great loss".
>>
>>The room goes silent. No other children volunteer.
>>
>>Kerry searches the room. "Isn't there someone here who can give me an
>>example of a tragedy?"
>>
>>Finally at the back of the room a small boy raises his hand. In a
>>quiet voice he says: "If a plane carrying the Senator John Kerry were
>>struck by a missile and blown to smithereens, that would be a
>>tragedy".
>>
>>"Fantastic !" exclaims Kerry. "You are absolutely right. Can you tell
>>me why that would be a tragedy?."
>>
>>"Well," says the boy, "because it sure as hell wouldn't be a great
>>loss and it probably wouldn't be an accident!"
