Calculating Risk

October 08, 2000

* Like so many Americans, Shawn Hubler is apparently unwilling to accept the fact that life is not risk-free (Oct. 2). She criticizes Disney for weighing risks and trade-offs in the design of rides. Yet every one of us makes these same calculations every single day and few of us make safety concerns the highest priority in every decision we make. If we did, we'd never do anything for fear of injury.

If Hubler is uncomfortable with the level of safety at Disneyland, perhaps she should just stay home (which might or might not actually be a safer alternative).
