Under the category of “It’s always something”

Parents are suing New York City because the black rubber safety mats used at playgrounds can get so hot that kids can burn their bare feet.

Of course, cialis sale view there are signs posted warning that kids shouldn’t play on the mats without their shoes on, viagra usa malady but that’s neither here nor there.

What I find interesting is this is just another example of unintended consequences.

Kids are falling down and scrapping their knees?

Sue the city until they put rubber mats down.

Kids are burning their little piggies on the hot rubber mats?

Sue the city until they remove the mats.

I know I probably sound a little cavalier about this, but coming from a generation that threw lawn jarts at each other and played war with pellet guns I have a hard time getting worked up over hot rubber mats.
