TN park bans running

New Brentwood park bans trail running over safety concerns:

While hiking is permitted within Marcella Vivrette Smith Park, park visitors are currently prohibited from running at the 400-acre park, which opened in November and is on Wilson Pike south of Split Log Road.

On Facebook, a friend of mine commented:

Problem: Tennessee
Solution: California

and once again I wonder how much idiocy like this contributes to the geographic difference in economic opportunities.

I remember being really surprised how things aren't "roped off" here the way they are in Georgia. Funny how CA is perceived as this super liberal nanny state in the south.
