Kid's a major liability

You've likely read by now about the young lad, attending a wedding reception replete with expensive (and apparently fragile) art work, who (apparently accidentally) knocked over a priceless glass statue.

Well, not "priceless," exactly, more like $132,000:

"A Kansas mother says an insurance company wants her family to pay $132,000 after her 5-year-old son accidentally knocked over a sculpture at a city community center."

Now, one may argue over whether or not it was "worth" $132 large (the artist himself apparently didn't think so, since he chose not to insure it). And, ultimately, the parents' homeowners insurance would likely cover the expense.

But as is often the case, the lede gets buried for the sake of clicks:

"All the city did was file an insurance claim," Overland Park communications manager Sean Reilly told CNET ... We are NOT seeking payment from the family"

Oh, so non-story, then.

But hey, there's clicks to be had and papers to move.

And they wonder why we don't trust the MSM.
