Editors reserve the right to edit letters for spelling, grammar, punctuation, excessive length and unsuitable content.

 

I applaud the skimmer's & the skier's creativity & courage

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

Congratulations, Skimmer & Ski! It's great to see those with an adventurous spirit challenging the norm. Your guys were great!

It would appear that your exciting exploit was well-planned, well-executed and well-prepared for the unforeseen. Ignore the Nanny State nay-sayers and shamers. If it was up to them there wouldn't be zip-lines, skydivers or even bicycles. Your feat did not endanger anyone's person or property. No "crime" has been committed here, except disregard for the wooses and wimps who would like to tell us all how to behave "safely and properly."

I applaud your creativity and courage. Next time give me a call and I'll help film.
