A little note for fun

- Why are innocents to be punished when somebody is guilty of a fault?
- What are you talking about? Itís the culprits who are punished, not the innocents! If somebody is guilty of a fault, it is they who will be punished!
- Of course, youíre right, they will be punished, but innocents will be punished as well!
- Could you be so extremely kind to explain clearly, just in case it were possible for you, naturally, what you intend to say?
- For example, if the culprit has a friend, the friend will be punished.
- Well, I suppose that the friend has taken an active part in the fault?
- Absolutely not.
- I imagine both friends were together?
- Absolutely not.
- All right, I summoned up my patience!
- The fault committed by one of them occurred the day before, during a match with somebody else.
- I still fail to see.
- He was forbidden to play the following match, the one I am speaking of, thus the friend was deprived of playing the doubles championship with him.
- All right, certainly, it is true; but the friend knew the rules of the game when joining together with his friend, he shared with him all the risks. If the tire of a car bursts, the other tires cannot continue running anymore. All these guys mustnít have joined together! Besides, itís not too serious, they will play another championship some day.
- I completely agree with you. Just a remark, however; if a man is sentenced in justice, the other tires are his family...
