"This will drain public swimming pools faster than a floating Babyruth"

In California they passed this thing called the "Deep Pockets" law, i.e. if multiple people are at fault for an accident the one with the most money (not the most at fault) gets to pay most of the damages.

If little Johnny got hurt from being pushed off the top of a slide by little Bobby and little Bobby's parents were destitute, then the city got to foot the bill.

It was only a few months before all of the playground equipment at all of the public parks was put off limits or removed.
