We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Maybe I missed it, but they showed the proper way to strap the kid in the seat but I don't remember showing the results of using that method when the kid is wearing his coat. It seems that the harness would still be effective.
Mudbug is right, and after watching that report, I have no idea whether a coat is actually a problem. All I saw was a child dummy incorrectly strapped in (while wearing a coat) and correctly strapped in (while not wearing a coat). They attempted to gloss this over by the reporter saying, "these straps feel tight to me" when they clearly had inches of play in them and completely ignoring the fact that the chest strap was at the kid's bellybutton. OF COURSE the dummy slipped out of the straps.
Seems like if it was a real problem, they wouldn't have to fake it.
