ALTERNATIVES TO WAR


There are so many things that young men can do besides fighting wars and each other.

Skateboarding is a great cheap sport (if you don’t count the public cost of damaged concrete and railings). After the initial investment in a board, you can waste infinite time, with little or no expense.

And if you abjure protective gear, you can waste a lot of time recuperating, maybe get in some reading.

SFWILLIE’S BLOG salutes skateboarders everywhere.

I join you in your salute. Like surfers, they tend to be sweet, sexy and non-aggressive towards other humans. The fact that the ramps in front of the Golden Gate Boulevard Federal Building haven't been transformed into a teenager's skateboard park is just one of the current world's current idiocies.
