The Prime Minister is vi...

The Prime Minister 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," the PM 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". <,/p>

"I'm afraid not, " explains the PM, "that is what we would call a great loss."

The room is silent, none of the other children volunteer. "What?" asks the PM, "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 says: "If an airplane carrying the Prime Minister was blown up by a bomb, THAT would be a tragedy".

"Wonderful!" the PM 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 wouldn't be a great loss!"
