With a tremendous sense of irony we bring you the story of 21-year-old Derek Kieper who recently died in a car accident. He was ejected from his vehicle because he wasn't wearing a seat belt and died of related injuries. This wouldn't make news except for the fact that Kieper was an ardent anti-seat belt advocate, claiming the government is intruding too much into our personal freedoms by requiring seat belt use. It's tough to not point out the cruel irony here but if we must we must.
