'a 79-year-old woman who lost consciousness after complaining of being dizzy and hot after riding on Tomorrowland Speedway.'

...almost laughing out of my chair here! My sentiments well expressed in these recent quotes.

I don't get this. How is a 68-year-old man having chest pains while riding The Simpsons Ride considered an "injury?" Are the theme parks supposed to do physicals on everyone over 50 when they get on a ride? A 79-year-old woman gets dizzy on the Speedway ride at Disney. She would probably get dizzy on the Florida Turnpike.
(from yesterday. shame on this author for providing this sobering view on an attempted big "story")

Is ANYONE stupid enough to think these "injuries" are even worth associating with the location where they occurred? I could find something more interesting to write about by wandering around my backyard looking in dirt.

Pleaseeee, Sentinel, end the suffering!
