Beware of manholes???

Hmm - never realized they were dangerous!!!

Hub Mayor Steamed Over Manhole Blasts

Menino Wants State Regulation Imposed

POSTED: 6:05 am EDT May 31, 2007

BOSTON -- A series of frightening incidents on city streets has Boston Mayor Tom Menino steamed.

NewsCenter 5's Gail Huff reported that after leaving the New England Aquarium, a 6-year-old boy received second-degree burns on his leg while walking over a steaming hot manhole.

A burst pipe underground was to blame for the steam that was so hot it blistered and burned the boy's leg.

Menino sent a letter to energy company Trigen-Boston demanding that antiquated pipes running under the city be repaired to correct the ongoing problem.

In the past couple of years, a 2-year-old boy and a woman were also both seriously burned in separate, similar incidents.

Menino wrote to the company, which owns more than 20 miles of underground pipelines, "The numerous steam-related malfunctions pose risks to public safety, impair the quality of life for our residents and visitors and require costly intervention by the city."

Trigen is a private company.

The mayor wants legislators to pass a law requiring steam companies, such as Trigen, to be regulated by the state.

While young children getting burned by steam blasts isn't much better, I'm glad this thread wasn't about what I thought it would be. :-b

You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.
