I wonder why skateboarders can’t comprehend why they’re so unpopular with many of their fellow citizens and why any attempt to restrain their excesses is treated as an assault on the Declaration of Independence.

Speaking for myself, there’s something discomforting about dodging reckless sidewalk skateboarders whether one is walking down Seventh Ave., Walnut St., or Pennsylvania Ave., particularly when the aim of the game seems to be to ride as close as possible to ambling pedestrians.
