Personal responsibility vs. irresponsible foolhardiness.

I also think skiers who go out of bounds and have to be rescued should have to pay the full cost of their rescue.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
