It takes a motorcycle crash.....

Interesting piece in today's NY Times "Week In Review" section that notes how a recent motocycle crash involving a star football player (US football, that is, the "star" being Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger) has some American's talking about risk-taking behavior and social responsibility. I especially like the closing lines:

And so the Steel City is an unhappy place — but one where debates about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness fill the public square, if only on sports call-in shows.
