“Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, Or what’s a heaven for?”
— Robert Browning
I am feeling a bit better about American society not going totally off the rails when it comes to personal responsibility. The Colorado Supreme Court was unequivocal in its skier responsibility decision, ruling 5-2 that when skiers, boarders, and other such adventurers venture from the beaten path, or in this case the defined trail, he/she assumes the risk. Even to the point of death.
