Commissioner's Response to Turf Temperature

New York City's Department of Parks & Recreation Commissioner Adrian Benepe has come up with a creative solution to the unacceptably high temperatures associated with artificial turf - put up a sign. A story with the header "City posts warnings of health risks to those playing on scorching fields" just appeared in Metro NY. Is the next step going to be an instruction sheet for treating third degree burns on children?

You don't give Benopee enough credit. He's fighting Obesity after all, so of course, children can't sit and rest on a field that will burn their little asses, they're going to be on their feet and moving, like little human hot potatoes. This guy is a genius.
