Death is inevitable.

People die at Bear Hole once in a while, lets shut down Bear Hole.

People die while boating on lake Oroville, lets put an end to that nonsense.

People die while skiing, No MORE SKIING!

A guy died a while back when the tire on his Spring Car blew up at the fairgrouds. NO MORE RACES!

Heck even passenger cars kill people, lets make everyone walk.

Or perhaps we could use this young mans death as an example of the fact that being free to enjoy yourself in the way you choose to has costs sometimes and people (Not the government) need to take responsibility for themselves and their friends.

And people will still die. Such is life.

Bad eating habits is now the number one preventable cause of death......

It kills more people in a 12 hour period than guns do in a whole year......

But moronic liberals want to ban guns..........ROTFLMAO

But there are more risks with these activities you mentioned. How much harm should come from tubing down a river with friends? Add several thousand and alcohol then you have a major problem. The big picture is a young life was wasted. He could have amounted to something or someone. Judging from the out-pouring of searched I'd say he was well liked. My heart goes out to his family.

More students have died in frat houses from drinking. More students have died on the railroad tracks. Our editor is having an emotional reaction and not thinking clearly .

How many people have tubed down that river in big groups with alcohol involved over the years?

How many people have died from it?

I think the surprising thing is that more people havn't died. Sure it is dangerous but it is not that dangerous and it is a risk people are willing to take.

So what?

I agree but what bothers me I guess is not that the edior is having a knee jerk emotional reaction but that two boards of supervisors and the state legislator are actually considering passing laws about this.

Utterly ridiculous!

Ban drinking on the river and the students will go elsewhere endangering themselves and others as they travel the extra distance.

No you moron, it was not a "typical liberal response", if you had read the article you would know that the proposed law was passed unanimously in the Butte County Board of Supervisors, both liberals and and Conservatives voted for it.

And on topix here, the one person to support such a law Vern, a conservative.

Why do you have to make everything into a partisan issue?

Oh my god! Read the fricken artile before you speak you moron!

It says:

"Assemblyman Dan Logue carried the bill and it passed the Legislature. It also passed the Board of Supervisors in Butte County on a 5-0 vote."

Dan Logue is a conservative Republican you moron, he is the one who took it to the state legislature and got it passed there.

Then it passed the Butte county board of supervisors on a BIPARTISAN 5-0 vote.

You really should talk less and read more. You look like a fool.

And what about the Butte County Board of Supervisors are you going to claim they are all closet liberals as well?

What about Vern here on topix. He is a conservative and he is the only one on here who has supported the law?

God, you are such a weasel!
