These were some of the worst road conditions we've seen in years...So why were some of our sports teams on the road to downstate? Who is in charge? It was dangerous and reckless! Shameful disregard for our children's safety.

On the other hand,

if your child was/is just “fodder” for the “chosen-few” active players, or bench-sitters,

you should have made a life-threatening decision, and kept your kid home!

Were you sleeping, as the bus left the station?

Where were you, commonsense,

before the bus left?

Once the horse has left the barn, you have to a hard time catching up to your parental responsibility.

If there were organized intramural local sports programs,

where everyone played, exercised and learned the art of good sportsmanship,

we wouldn’t have these types of concerns.

Would we!

Commonsense ?

In another age,

it was an “enlightened” parent’s responsibility to make dreaded choices for their children.

Why have you and many other’s abrogated your parental

responsibilites to other people?

Clearly, you have a primary responsibility to enquire, learn and decide for your child,

the suitability of conditions where you so willingly send your child/children, and

then scream in indignation because someone else,

made a choice for you?
