Maybe if Saratoga Springs Mayor Mia Love had run on how she successfully thwarted the parasites in the personal injury lawyer industry to build Utah's awesomest new playground, she'd be Utah's awesomest new congresswoman right about now.
But then people might hear it was actually the City Council's idea, and that all it took to defeat the decades-long plague of playground injury lawsuits and the boring equipment and resulting unhealthy play patterns, is a couple of advisory signs.
So carry on, and let your kid play a little more adventurously knowing that if she breaks her arm, it's good for her, developmentally. And that your health insurance, whether it was mandated by the Affordable Care Act or not, will pay for the ER visit.
