    If it's a repost just humor me.

    The "Reverends" Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, while visiting a
    primary class, found themselves in the middle of a discussion related
    towords and their meanings.

    The teacher asked both men if they would like to lead the discussion
    of the word "tragedy". So the illustrious "Rev" Jackson 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 "Reverend" Al. "That's what we would call a great loss." The room goes silent. No other children volunteer.

    "Reverend" Al searches the room. "Isn't there someone here who can
    give me an example of a tragedy?"

    Finally at the back of the room little Johnny raises his hand. In a
    stern voice he says: "If a plane carrying the "Reverends" Jackson and
    Sharpton were struck by a missile and blown to smithereens that would
    be a tragedy."

    Fantastic!" exclaims Jackson and Sharpton, "That's right. And can you
    tell me why that would be a tragedy?"

    "Well," says little Johnny, "because it sure as heck wouldn't be a great loss, and it probably wouldn't be an accident either."
