However, after re-reading the rant again, I admit I got the context
wrong. He was referencing "safety nannies" saying, among other things,
that he was "worried" their kids would be "fat and unfit" because of
the "relatively sedentary 'safety' lifestyle" their parents were
promoting. I wrote that hauling kids around makes them just as
sedentary, but I now see the OP's main issue has to do with comments
about safety truths/myths more than about lifestyle. My bad.
