A CLASSIC STORY: Motorcyclist in helmet protest ride hits head, dies

Although this story is tragic, it is Darwin's law... survival of the fittest. Obviously this guy wasn't the brightest bulb. 

FROM USA TODAY:  A CLASSIC STORY: Motorcyclist in helmet protest ride hits head, dies
   ONONDAGA, N.Y. (AP) — A man riding bareheaded on one of about 550 motorcycles in an anti-helmet law rally lost control of his cycle, went over his handlebars, hit his head on the pavement and died, police said Sunday.
  The motorcyclist, 55-year-old Philip A. Contos, likely would have survived the accident if he'd been wearing a helmet, state troopers said.
  The accident happened Saturday afternoon in Onondaga, a town in central New York near Syracuse.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
