    Unrelated to anything

    I just saw a PSA about using car seats for children. The recommendation was that car seats should be used for kids shorter than 4' 9". The rationale is that kids must be that tall in order for the seatbelts to be adjusted to fit them properly.

    I was surprised at the 4' 9" height requirement. That means that, conceivably, Olympic gymnast Kerri Strugg should have been in a car seat even as a teenager. Ditto for Dr. Ruth, Edith Piaf and Gary Coleman.
