Everywhere I go, I see kids scooting around on these rollershoes (left), which seem to be more popular than ever -- almost always without a helmet. And it occurs to me that soon enough there will be a spate of stories about how the shoes lead to injuries (some already here) and we'll all wonder why anyone ever let them be sold. Just like lawn darts from 20 years ago. Remember lawn darts?
