Chessboard

So, I was reading today's Jon Carrol Column which mentioned that the town of Mill Valley refused to allow the building of an outdoor chessboard large enough for pieces two feet high, in order to protect the children, and became enchanted with
My experience is that children over 4 have enough common sense not to run into the street just because they feel menaced by a chessboard. (There's something eerie about the whole idea: "Pawn takes pawn; bishop takes pawn; rook takes Tyler, 8, of Larkspur.")

and had to share it with you.
