A Tragedy
School Comics

George Bush 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 TRAGEDY." "No," Bush 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 Bush. "That is what we
would call a GREAT LOSS." The room is silent; none of the other
children volunteer. "What?" asks Bush. "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 George Bush were
blown up by a bomb, that would be a TRAGEDY." "Wonderful!"
Bush beams. "Marvelous! And can you tell me WHY that would be

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