Today's Bizarro is available in four designer finishes, including "Faux Suede" and "Vegas Bling!"
I'm not one of those cranky people who want to outlaw skateboarding in public areas, any more than I want to outlaw roller blades or bicycles. As a regular cyclist and motorcycle rider, I'd much sooner outlaw SUVs.
I do, however, think that if you're engaging in one of the aforementioned activities in public and hit a pedestrian, you should lose your constitutional rights for a period of 90 seconds. That means the offended party has a minute and a half to retaliate without fear of prosecution.
Seems fair to me.
