    Yes.

    Didn't answer the poll though. The choices were bullshit.

    Because of recent revelations concerning concussions, I would never let my kid play football.

    Your response completely eliminates my ability as a parent to assess or compartmentalize risk.

    Basically you're saying that because I put my kids in an automobile, I would be a hypocrit if I didn't let them swim with sharks.

    But don't the Amish put their kids in one horse-power carts? I think the Amish may be the biggest hypocrites.....next to the parents of surfers and skin divers and cliff divers.
