Letter: Sculpture: Safety for children the issue

In response to Jill Andre's letter last week regarding safety (being) more important than the couch sculpture — how right she is if she has watched the children climb on the sculpture and jump off the top "couch." Where is the safety in that? What's going to happen when one of the children misses the soft ground and ends up on the lower rocks?

This is a public park and the children think it's fun to climb. Menlo Park could have a good lawsuit if someone got hurt. Maybe this is not what Jill had in mind, but it's also (as) important as the bicyclists and pedestrians she mentioned.

Eiffel Tower compared to the rock sculpture? I don't think so. It is time to get rid of the sculpture.
