Next Time You See Somebody On A Motorcycle Without A Helmet

Hand him or her a copy of this article from today's New York Times ...


We won't need helmet laws. The threat of ALS or a similar motor neuron disease should be enough of a motivation.

Perhaps this article will increase the urgency of the DOD ALSRP research. Perhaps this article will get the attention of the CDC so that head trauma history might be included in the ALS Registry.

By the way, Lou Gehrig is our hero -- nothing less.

Ain't it ironic that a motorcycle rider without a helmet is unlikely to have a clue about ALS. If you get the impression that helmetless riders are clueless you absolutely get my drift.
