Banning Hot Air balloons would solve it. After all, no one NEEDS to ride in one. It's just a completely unmerited risk.

A complete ban - isn't that the ultimate govt interference with 'freedom'? and the opposite of your argument?

Check the batteries in your sarcasm detector. I think they may need to be replaced (:

Batteries fine. Recalibration needed.
