Dumb as...

I sailed alone at an early age (under 10 footers / El Toro and dinghys) and was racing Sunfish 13' when I was about 13 and certainly didn't need supervision.

I understand power boat restrictions and some are in place in California for youth, but if you can sail... you are a skilled boater.

Geez, the article starts, "Law plays four primary roles in society, which are to protect people from harm, ensure a common good, settle arguments and disputes regarding finite resources and persuade people to do the right thing."

This proposed law is of the latter variety, "persuade..." Trouble is, prudes like that lawmaker seem to think fun should be forbidden.

Does anyone know why the esteemed politician feels this is needed? Was there some tragedy that occurred? Maybe some kid sailed off with his wife.
