Political kids

President Obama was visiting a school and decided to ask one class if anybody could give him an example of a tragedy.

Little Jimmy stood up and said “If my pal Ossie was playing in the street and a car knocked him down and killed him, that would be a tragedy.”

“Oh no,” said Obama, “that would be an accident.”

Mary thought she had the answer and stood up. “If a bus carrying 50 American school children ran off the road and killed everybody, that would be a tragedy.”

“Oh no,” said Obama, “that would be a great loss.”

None of the other children could think of anything worse so Obama said he would give a special prize to whoever gave him a good example of a tragedy.

Finally a boy at the back of the class said “If you, Osama bin Laden and Colonel Gadaffi were in an aeroplane that was blown up by a bomb that would be a tragedy.”

“Well done!” said Obama “Now, I will double your prize if you can tell me why that would be a tragedy.”

“OK” said the boy, “it would be a tragedy because it would be no accident, nor would it be a great loss.”
