Toyota the Latest Target

Some perspective on, yes, the latest target of the left (and the Obama administration). Safe Toyotas and other surprises. Steve Chapman. The sobering problems of modernity. Charles Krauthammer.

I am reminded of campaigns to make playground equipment safer. While laudable in intent, the net effect often was to dismantle gear that challenged, strengthened, and brought joy to children.

Could a child fall off a swing? Yes. Not a very modern invention.

Next thing you know kids won't be allowed to run at recess. It has happened.

Risk is part of every day life. Moms and dads try to manage it for their children. Adults are responsible for themselves. Our government can only manage so much. Try to stick to the important things. Otherwise you raise the cost of living too high.
