Common Sense

By Ronald Court

It never ceases to amaze me how Booker T’s down-to-earth approach to practical living continues to be so relevant, even 90 years after he has passed on.
I went in for my semi-annual teeth cleaning this afternoon. (Well, OK. My last visit really was two years ago.) During one of those, “Rinse. Now” breaks, I suggested to the dental hygenist that she tell me about herself while she picked away. As I lay there, mouth wide open and finger-full, she volunteered that she had a college degree in English… “But after I graduated, I realized I needed to make a living, so I went back to school and became a dental hygenist.”

Booker T. spent his whole life trying to get us to use common sense in the choices we make. And his work is still not done.
