    MODS, sorry if its too political. feel free to delete if neccesary.....

    Barack Obama is visiting a school. In one class, he asks the students
    if anyone can give him an example of a "TRAGEDY". One little boy
    stands up and offers, "If my best friend who lives next door was playing
    in the street when a car came along and killed him, that would be a
    "No," Obama says, "That would be an ACCIDENT."

    A girl raises her hand. "If a school bus carrying fifty children drove
    off a cliff, killing everyone involved... that would be a TRAGEDY."

    I'm afraid not," explains Obama. "That is what we would call a GREAT
    LOSS." The room is silent; none of the other children volunteer.
    "What?" asks Obama. "Isn't there any one here who can give me an
    example of a TRAGEDY?"

    Finally, a boy in the back raises his hand. In a timid voice, he
    speaks: "If an airplane carrying Barack and Michelle Obama were blown up
    by a bomb, *that* would be a TRAGEDY."

    "Wonderful!" Obama beams. "Marvelous! And can you tell me WHY that
    would be a TRAGEDY?"

    "Well," says the boy, "because it wouldn't be an ACCIDENT, and it
    certainly would be no GREAT LOSS!"
