    ...as to whether the bicycle helmet actually helps or hurts in low-speed crashes. When I was a kid, of course, bike helmets didn't exist. I had tons of spills, some of which wrecked the bike, but I was never hurt... just lucky, I guess.

    Today I ride a heavy cruiser bike on the streets of my town and on paved bike trails. I do wear a helmet (though on a recent vacation to the laid-back Florida Keys, none of the other riders I encountered wore one) on the street, where I'm likely to encounter inattentive motorists, but not always on paved trails.

    I vote we run Rick Scott out of Florida on a high-speed rail.
