That's what some community leaders called roller skating as it became popular in the late 19th century. Some medical experts even branded it as hazardous to health.

I have an article on the subject in the July/August issue of Pennsylvania Magazine. Lots of other interesting articles and fabulous photography in the issue. Grab a copy.

High Praise

Writers love reviews, especially those that come with praise. Some reviews are more important than others: The first one. One that comes from a reviewer with creds.
