Laudable for its advocacy of fitness, last week’s Outdoor View (Clarion, Aug. 19) begs comment. No one wishes to heedlessly burden family or society. No one likes the Emergency Room, and no one courts the Intensive Care Unit. But while physical fitness may reduce one’s chances of encountering the ER or the ICU, physical fitness is by no means a guarantee of endless independence or of an easy, painless, hassle-free exit.
