    It might be a repost, and you can insert your "favorite" person, but I laughed at the e-mail....

    Jesse Jackson, while visiting a primary school class, found himself
    in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings.

    The teacher asks the Rev. Jackson if he would like to lead the
    discussion on the word "tragedy." So the illustrious leader asks the
    class for an example of a "tragedy."

    One little boy stood up and offered: "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."

    "No," says the great Jesse Jackson, "that would be an accident."

    A little girl raised her hand: "If a school bus carrying 50 children
    drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a
    tragedy."

    I'm afraid not," explains the exalted spiritual leader.
    "That's what we would call a great loss."

    The room goes silent. No other children volunteer.

    Rev. Jackson 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 Rev. Jackson were
    struck by a missile and blown to smithereens that would be a
    tragedy."

    "Fantastic!" exclaims Jackson, "That's right. And 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 either."
