So, got an email from our insurance company regarding Pokemon Go. Seems that if people are injured on our property Pokemoning, we can be held liable. Their solution? First, put up no trespassing signs. Yeah, that is welcoming. Not going to happen. Second, fill out the forms to have Pokemon sites removed from the property. Also, not going to happen. This brings folks near the church who would never come here otherwise. The sad thing is that I can see the insurance people's point. Torts in this country have gotten entirely out of control. In a sane world, unless I had Burmese Man Traps and Punji Stakes on the grounds, the should be no liability for injuries. We need to stop rewarding stupid.
