LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Skateboarders should wear helmets

In the interest of safety and modeling correct behavior your photographer could have taken a picture of a skate boarder wearing a helmet. It appears that there is no helmet rule at the skate board park. Accidents do happen even when you are young and invincible. I would hope this community encourages people to wear helmets whether they are skate boarding, cycling or skiing. A helmet is a small price to pay to prevent having to relearn the alphabet or worse.
