    " But the flock cried out, more
    feebly for their voices were fewer, though with no less terror, 'Baaaaaaaad!
    These things are bad! If they were banished, the wolves would not harm us!
    Baaaaaaad!' "

    Chris, that's a great story,
    Sounds like it would make a good childrens book. Easy for young minds to comprehend, and a good enough lesson for adults to like it. I might have to print it out and add it to the night time reading list.

    IMO
    Kind of rings with the echo of the old saying.

    I was thinking about this story, and wanted to bring it back to the front page for some of the newer members.

    A great read.

    Thanks again Chris for posting this.

    Great story, and thank you for bumping it back up again. I had not seen it.

    Unfortunately it uses logic, and using logic with many (most?) anti's is like trying to use logic with a drunk or an insane person -- it simply doesn't get through.

    Still a great piece, though.

    This is a story about sheep. Sheep seem to have the ability to enjoy being victims. So very sad.
