    Swing sets removed at some W.Va. schools - Yahoo! News

    I think they should ban scissors as well. Too dangerous. Maybe even pencils. Chalk makes some kids sneeze... :evil:

    Ban children.



    Funny though, how Americans ranted about Tony Hayward (BP ex CEO) when he commented that they would be vetting claims to make sure they were genuine. Anyone else kind of see where Tony was coming from yet?

    Nope. The trouble isn't that some kidlet faked a broken arm.....the trouble is that parents seem to feel entitled to injury-proof playgrounds at schools. That wasn't BP's problem. THEIR liability was stunningly clear.

    Actually, the term you're looking for is 'scapegoat'.

    Open the yellow pages to "lawyers".
    Read the names and you'll quickly see the core of the problem.

    We continue to want to swaddle our children in bubble wrap and run around screaming whenever they get hurt, looking for someone to sue.

    I agree.

    They should also ban mimeograph machines as the chemicals used in them can give one a headache!

    When I was in school every year there was some kid who broke his arm by falling out of the swing. It was somewhat of a status symbol to have a broken arm when I was a kid and even more of a status thing if the ambulance came to pick you up from the playground at school. Nobody ever got sued because of it. It was just a part of growing up. Guess the times they are a changing...
