"Gov. Jerry Brown scored a victory for common sense last week when he vetoed a bill that would have imposed criminal penalties on minors -- or their parents -- who ski or snowboard without a helmet. 'While I appreciate the virtue of wearing a ski helmet, I am concerned about the continuing and seemingly inexorable transfer of authority from parents to the state,' Brown explained. 'Not every human problem deserves a law.' ... There are two bills awaiting his signature that will tell Californians much about Brown." [editor's note: To evaluate Ms. Saunders' (generally pro-liberty) POV, consider that just yesterday, the LA Times deplored this specific Brown decision, while applauding his other vetoes - SAT] (09/13/11)
