Wear a damn helmet!!!

I am sure many of you have already read:

Natasha Richardson, a film star, Tony-winning stage actress and member of the famed Redgrave acting family, died Wednesday after suffering injuries in a ski accident, according to a family statement. She was 45.

According to a statement from Mont Tremblant Ski Resort, Richardson fell during a lesson on a beginners' trail. "She did not show any visible sign of injury, but the ski patrol followed strict procedures and brought her back to the bottom of the slope and insisted she should see a doctor," the statement said.

If you ski with us and don't wear a helmet, you already know we can be quite a nag. We hear silly things about "I don't ski that fast" or "I don't ski near the trees". The only reason not to wear a helmet is if your brain just isn't worth the $100 it costs to buy a good ski helmet.
