    Kinda like driving past an auto-accident on the interstate, isn’t it? your better nature wants you to look away, your dark side wants to drink it in, and the little bit in the middle ends up both fascinated, and horrified, while the Reason segment (usually somewhere at the back, and if you’re a normal American, heavily repressed) just kind of shuts down so that, after you’ve decided to be horrified, you’ll go “There Oughta BE a LAW!!!” and “Why did this HAPPEN/Let’s Do Something About It”.

    Usually that’s the voice that ends up with you pressuring your government (through public opinion, lobbying efforts, etc.) to do the most idiotic and repressive thing it can get away with in the name of “Safety”.

    ..and the alternative in the name of safety is…what?

    I figure attending such an event has its inherent risks. Kinda of like sitting in the stands of a Nascar event and ending up with a car in your lap. It is very sad, but extreme events sometimes end extremely bad.

    While horrific, more people die or are injured by driving to these events. It’s like an airline crash. Makes for great highlights. But, real statistics are boring.

  • Cannonshop

    Allen: The alternative, is to understand that some things carry risk, and accept that risk or reject it in your OWN behaviour. As Rudi pointed out, more people are killed in accidents doing mundane things (like driving to a sporting event) routinely, than are killed in accidents like this.

    There’s a saying that the most oppressive and effective prison one can be in, has the locks on the INSIDE of the doors. When you let fear make your decisions, that’s the prison you’re volunteering to lock yourself (and your loved ones) into.

  • Allen

    Do you hear that FAA gubmin’t man? Cannonslop here says you ought not be a regulate’n cause you make’n people fear’d n’ prison like.

  • Cannonshop

    Wow, Allen…just wow.

    HOw in hell do you get to that place?

    seriously.

    I never said there was NO place for regulations, I’m saying that there is a LIMIT to how useful they are, and how MUCH you can regulate before you destroy what you were trying to protect.

    Tell me, are you one of those people who believe enough is never enough?
