Base jumping should not be glorified

Success - Article sent! close

First, our local delivery service is excellent. Thank you. Next, on the tragic story of Adam Rubin, the base jumper who died in Idaho, what exactly are you thinking? Why encourage, as your article did, people to go sky diving or base jumping?

Respectfully, anyone who steps out of an airplane, or off a high point, is entitled to the result they achieve. No, I do not ask to stop them from stepping into danger. That is their choice, or their parents' choice. But I do suggest that your writers not make it look cool and uplifting. Disagree? OK, let your own kids go and do it.
