This tiny town has made one small step in retreat from the American stampede toward a total Nanny State. They have repealed their bicycle helmet law.

“Of course you should wear a helmet,” she (Mayor Debra Perry) said in an interview in her office. “But this is a parents issue — parents need to be supervising their children, making sure their children are well dressed and have helmets on. "

Congratulations Mayor Debra Perry!!!!!!!!! You are a lone bright spot in a sea of American nanny state politicians. Maybe that idiot in NY who thinks the nanny state should tell people what size drinks they can buy will call you up for some advice.

Maybe there is hope for this country.
