WTF does any of this have to do with YOUR statement that we need to 'do something' about people who don't wear helmets? I don't give a crap about "prevailing trends, political posturing, or inherent dogmas about what to do and what not to do, who's on who's side, what literature each side reads and so on", I just want to know why you want to screw with my personal choices?
