Too Dangerous For Untrained Professionals To Own: TV Sets

February 20, 2012 CBS Chicago reports on an epidemic of small children being killed and seriously injured by...television sets:
The uncle was watching the 17-month-old girl in the living room while the other children were in another room. He heard a loud thump and when he went to check it out, found a 20-inch TV set had fallen on the 2-year-old girl.
In the past six months, accidents involving TVs have left at least four small children dead, and one more injured, in the Chicago area.
It appears that as more of the flat screen TVs are sold, tube TVs (which are often quite heavy) are moving into bedrooms, dens, and other places that lack appropriate spots to put them.  You could almost get the impression that there are a lot of people in the Chicago area who lack common sense.  This explains Chicago politics, doesn't it?
