I submit that anyone who uses the word “safe” to describe the proposed Great Bull Run in Shakopee be required to run in the event. The event in Pamplona, Spain is the single stupidest thing that happens each year. And some want to do it here. Even with no horns, have you ever been stepped on (much less trampled) by something that weighs 2,500 pounds?

Oh, well, Darwinism at its best.
