    i'm not so sure about common sense. does a mentally retarder person possess
    what more fortunate people call "common sense?" yet i seem to remember
    something pretty morally amazing happening at the Special Olympics not-too-long ago.
    and as for golden rule, etc., i have a loose, basic definition of Morality that
    geos something like: "if something is done with the intention of bettering an
    existing situation, then that which is done is moral; unless that which is
    done bears consequences worse than what it was intended to fix", etc. of course
    there's more than that and one quickly discovers it becomes more and more
    complex and harder and harder to define...
