This elephant polo thing just keeps getting better and better: one of the teams consists of ladyboys.

CNN reports: "Elizabeth K. Mohl, 16, of Neenah, was killed Saturday after falling 40 to 50 feet from a ride called Air Glory. [...] The girl was attending Lifest, a Christian music festival that features rides and sports. Workers shut down the ride after the afternoon accident. A prayer service was held before the festival resumed about 7:30 p.m." More information and the above image from Ride Accidents. I offer my sincere condolences to Ms. Mohl's family and friends.
I would also like to ask some questions. Is it a good idea to have rides like this at all? Is this ride regulated, or monitored, or governed in some way? Who is responsible for that? What does prayer do? How do Christians justify people being killed by 'acts of God' while engaged in Christian activities (not to mention an equally awful Christian 'Disneyland')?
