Regarding the Dec. 28 letter from Natasha Reid, Rescue Costs Come With Healthier Lifestyle, and the ongoing issue of skiers and boarders going out of bounds:
My first response was a sign: "-- People Have Gone Out of Bounds Here. -- of Them Died. Are You Next?" This is evidently too draconian. Newest idea: "Hey! Are You Man Enough To Go Out of Bounds? Go for It, Dude! Oh, and Rescue Cost? No Sweat, It's on Us!"
If Natasha Reid is willing to contribute to search costs for these free spirits, she is welcome to pay my share.
