I would like to thank you for once again showing that you cannot just make a point without attacking someone in some form. You could have simply replied to my post without inferring that I am somehow out of touch with reality. I know that this is not a perfect world, however that is not an excuse for the increasing lack of responsibility that parents have. It is no doubt that things will happen and that the world is not perfect. Cleaning up this work site, while important, will not even come close to making the world closer to perfect. Perhaps the first step we could take to a more perfect world could be being a little more friendly.
Wouldn't want to ruin your fun though,
Additionally, thank you for correcting my word useage.

I agree with you 100%, BMW. If this were a perfect world, all parents would
assume responsibility for raising their children. In a perfect world, there
would never be any need for warning labels. In a perfect world, there would
be no locks on doors. In a perfect world, there would be no laws.
Everybody would not only look out for themselves, but each other.
As much as a surprise as this may come to you, BMW, this is not a perfect
world. Warning labels are emplaced to prevent accidents. Locks are
installed to secure property. Laws are enacted to protect the community.
And safety measures are taken at construction sites (to include the
construction site located at Third Street and Mountain View) to prevent
Until this becomes a perfect world, warning labels will be emplaced, locks
will be installed, laws will be enacted, and safety measures will be taken.
To tell you the truth, the alternative scares me.

Hello. As a parent I appreciate the concern that you all seem to have about
the safety of our children. I am wondering however, when do we start to lay
some of the responsibility on the parents and not just the people in town
that we aren't found of? I believe it is the parents responsibilty to
teacher their children where they can and cannot play and to be aware of
their whereabouts. I know that solution does not fit into the blaming model
of the vision, but it does seem a whole lot more logical.
