Thoughtful column that makes the very important point that no matter what problem we are trying to solve, we have to start somewhere. Zealotry cuts off problem-solving before it can begin. more »

This is an important step toward getting employers to recognize that taking care of children is a family issue and not solely a womens' issue. more »

You nailed it. Basically, two principles of physics - 110 lb me vs 2500+ pound car, and thin bike tires vs. ice and snow - both add up to too much risk. No amount of care or preparation can lower that more »

Unfortunately, since we can't be sure of people's motives, it makes sense to teach children to err on the side of self-protection. Hurting an adult's feelings beats being kidnapped. Good Samaritans more »
