The following missive, by Lawrence A Bullis of Phoenix to the Arizona Republic, was reprinted in Harper's: This is from a paper copy given to me: I can not locate the original on Harper's site or the AZ Republic's site. *************************** "Every day some new do-gooder is trying to save us from ourselves. "We have so many laws and safety commissions to ensure our safety that it seems nearly impossible to have an accident. "The problem is we need accidents, and lots of them. Danger is nature's way of eliminating stupid people. "Without safety, stupid people die in accidents.... "With safety, however well-intended it may be, we are devolving into half-witted mutants, because idiots, who by all rights should be dead, are spared from their rightful early graves and are free to breed even more imbeciles. "Let's do away with safety and improve our species. "Take up smoking, Jaywalking, Play with blasting caps, Swim right after a big meal, stick something small in your ear. "Take your choice of dangerous activity and do it with gusto. "Future generations will thank you".
