Letter to the Independent:

Sirs,

I never cease to be amazed at the stupidity of people. Standing less than ten feet from the landing zone of airborne two-ton trucks in an unlighted night-time desert race, eight people are killed and dozens injured in an accident.

Only then, when it is too late, do the idiotic spectators start to complain about the lack of crash barriers. Only then, when it is too late, do they realise that even cheap thrills can have a high price.

Whatever the opposite of evolution is, it’s going on in America…

Regards,

Paul Harper
