A lot of people- myself included- were amused by this story. The saga contains several compelling elements- a turf war, power plays and a major snafu. The cities of Leawood and Prairie Village were skirmishing over the possible placement of a sculpture at the intersection of Somerset and Lee. (It's near 79th and State Line.) The devilishly handsome Emaw satirized the situation. The small patch of grass in question is pictured here. Neither the story nor Emaw's response addresses my primary concern- a sculpture would obstruct the view. The relatively busy intersection has both a stoplight and a yield sign. I've never seen an accident there, perhaps largely because drivers can make eye contact with one another. I cast my lot with the naysayers.
