Riding a bike without a helmet while wearing headphones seems a little risky!!

I don't see what goes without saying, since it does happen all too often—so clearly it bears repeating. And repeating. And repeating. And it has nothing to do with compassion or lack thereof for the victim. I keep all cycling victims in my thoughts. Prayer...well, that's your thing.
