Vetoes don’t get much pithier or more satisfying than one issued this week by California Gov. Jerry Brown.Handed an all-too-familiar attempt to micromanage away human misfortune – in this case, mandating helmets for skiers under 18 – Brown issued a statement of rejection that was as devastating as it was brief.He wrote:”While I appreciate the value of wearing a ski helmet, I am concerned about the continuing and seemingly inexorable transfer of authority from parents to the state. Not every human problem deserves a law. I believe parents have the ability and the responsibility to make good choices for their children.”Not every human problem deserves a law. Seven words that should be chiseled into the walls above the busybodies of the New York City Council and the New York State Legislature. Join the Conversation:
