    There are places where kids can race on go-karts.


    Witnesses at the scene tell Bay News 9 the child was a driver in a junior racing series and hit a wall head-on. Witnesses said the race was canceled.

    I see your point but it's hard to draw the line. We had a boy here locally who was killed by a line drive in a baseball game a few years ago. I also recall, maybe 5 years ago, when two high school kids were killed by bulls they were trying to ride at rodeos.

    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.
