  1. Pretty sure in Aus there are a lot more safety protocols in place. Things like lockout locks where you lock a machine and the key is with the guy IN the machine so it can’t be turned on whilst he’s inside.

  2. The most interesting thing about the NYT article to me was its description of what killed the proposed regulations — overreach by the bureaucrats. The minute they thought they had a potential regulation, they just had to load it up with all kinds of extras and address all manner of additional subjects. In the process, they gave the ammunition to their political opponents.

    The perfect is the enemy of the good.

  3. Well said, JustAMan!

    What a damn shame. And it’s often the career politicians – the ones so distanced from the decisions they make and how those decisions actually impact human lives. How many deaths is a kickback worth?
