    I'll take my reckless kids out there tomorrow! Bring on MLB/NBA millions for my family!

    Seriously though, what in the world are they thinking??? This from a city that, at least in the past, had homeowners fees to pay for things like snow removal. Sheesh!

    All it will take is one successful lawsuit, and adios pyramid! (Or even a threatened lawsuit, and the city decides to settle out of court.)

    Signage won't cut it; otherwise the merry-go-rounds and teeter-totters could still be there, behind a sign that says "Warning! You might hurt yourself!"

    People successfully sue because they fall off a ladder, or get smacked while bicycling at night without lights, or chop their fingers off in a lawn mower or table saw. I say you better stick with the Tupperware playground equipment that's no more than 18 inches off the ground.

    Maybe Saratoga Springs will get lucky, and the ambulance-chaser will actually live out there.

    We need to bring fun back into the parks of the world. They have become sterile and lame!

    Thank goodness someone is doing something about it.

    I love it.

    Ironic that a "Sigfried and Jensen" ad ran next to this story as I was reading it.
