    News Article-Can't figure if pro or anti helmet

    Both sides of the helmet debate could use this as a case example. Seems a head injury at a bicycle wharehouse had some errr... effects. Anyways, he's getting 3.5 million so it's not like he'll be left out on the streets. Well, at least not all the time. Now the question is, should I still wear a helmet or not?

    If she's left him several times since being married eight months before the accident in 2006, this sounds like a train wreck that just hasn't flattened a track side community ....yet. Take the bucks and bolt, count yourself lucky dude.
