Whenever you find that you are on the side of the majority, it is time to reform.

Anybody know anything more about what happened on this one...did the tub come off the stub arm, or did the stub arm come off the sweep?

(either one seems pretty unlikely to me, but stranger things have happened...)

Here are links to the articles in one of the local news papers...

http://www.delawareonline.com/n...7/27mishapcantkeepp.html 
The print version of the latter article also has a photo of riders zooming-by on the orbiter with the spider next to it, with the photo caption, "Fair-goers ride the orbiter on Monday, just a few feet away from the spider, which was shut down this weekend".
The print version of this article also has "Ride Safety Tips" from "Indepependent safety consultant" Ken Martin of Virginia.
"Don't forget to be half fair and give a little credit to the small concessionaire"
