eesh...i didn't mean to ruffle any one's feathers with my opinions...
once again, not to be controversial...
now, i'm all for freedom of choice, but with some things, there is no choice... i can choose
wear sunglasses, just like i could choose
to kill some one(not that i would), but just because i have the freedom to choose doesn't make it right.
jen, are you runnin for sen.
lol, a senator? no, but i am studying to be a medical examiner... and it upsets me every time i see a motorcyclist ride by without a helmet or a passenger in a car who's not wearing a seat belt, because i always think "you know, i might be seeing this person in my morgue becasue they made the choice not to wear their helmet/seatbelt" and it's the same when i see someone smiking or doing drugs. it's their choice, but it could kill them.
food for thought, when a race organization requires helmets, is that infringing on one's right to choose? they are
forcing you to wear a helmet. it's either that or not race. so if you have no choice in the matter, why do you still race?
