Evel Lives

So Evel Knievel is dead. The world is a smaller place. He was one of the world's great coma patients whose one fear, I seem to recall, was water. There are, as Dave Barry has taught us, few things more consoling than a guy willing to do futile, dangerous things. But, dry your tears, Evel's spirit lives on.

  1. "A guy willing to do dangerous, futile things." Well that statement just about covers every boy I have ever known, from my brothers to my husband to my son. Have you never seen the show "Jackass"? There is also "Jackass the Movie."
