Ted Bronson draws the line with I am no longer a child:
Did things go wrong when someone decided that little Johnny (who still can’t read) deserved a trophy just like the MVP of his little league team? Doesn’t that kind of negate the purpose of trophies if EVERYONE gets them?An excellent statement from a new blog that's going right into my blogroll.
Did things change when the Fed decided it knew best how to protect us and make seatbelts mandatory for everyone? I used to ride on the shelf in the back of our Chrysler New Yorker. The car would drive up a forty-five degree hill just by putting it in gear and never touching the gas. She was a tank, as evidenced by the beating she took at the hands of my older brother when he inherited it. Even after her final undignified crash, seatbelts were optional…no one in the Boat got hurt even though she was never the same afterwards.
At what point did the politically correct crowd decide to nanny us?
