Arizona: Mayo Clinic Wants To Save Your Child's Life

Want easy karma points? The Mayo Clinic is offering a free baseline concussion test exam for Arizona high school student-athletes so they can be tested again after a possible brain injury (along with a full medical examination by a health care specialist) to find out the severity of their injury. Information about the program can be found here:

Now email this article to every parent of an Arizona high school student you know, reminding them that their child won't be allowed back on the field of play if they don't pass a thorough medical examination from a health care provider. The test can be taken online in less time than it takes to weasel out of taking out the garbage.

If you work in a high school, print this up and plaster it all over the locker rooms. If you don't, run down your block tonight, shouting the web site address. Hire a skywriter to write out the address over your nearest football field. Create a YouTube video that just shows the address and perhaps a cat doing something adorable. It's that easy.

Now feel free to flip the bird to the next person to cut you off in traffic. You've earned it.
