So I read recently where some New England town has banned sledding, allegedly in the name of safety, but more in fear of possible lawsuits. I often wonder -- now that I survived childhood mostly intact -- how today’s kids are going to be able to handle the world. These days childhood seems to be underpinned by this utterly unreasonable and unrealistic desire to make the world a perfect place.
