Fear and Loathing

I wrote last week about Free-Range Kids with The Creek Boys. Free-Range Kids highlights just how much things have changed in the last 50 years regarding unjustified fears . . . of everything.

Unauthorized Rest Area Rules

I spent some time last week driving through Illinois and Indiana. One thing I noticed was the difference between their “rules” in their rest areas. Illinois: nanny state. Indiana: live and let live.
