    about that yuppie jazzed on coffee that has never considered the flesh and blood consequences of being pushy in a 3800lb SUV even if it is a Lexus.

    How big is your personal carbon footprint?

      risk decisions are made in your example.

      1- you choose to drive, and bring your kid
      2 - others make similar choices

      in those two decisions, both you and the others make a risk trade off, and you have your reasons

      there is no risk decision a parent can make when a random shooter, as rare as it is, enters a room where his or her child is sitting and opens fire.

      that is why gun crime and driving can't be compared.

        a lot more likely to get creamed by some pushy yuppy than some wacked out child of a yuppy, though a little less focus on work and a little more on parenting skills might go a long way.
