A Sure Way to Test Fragility

Some families in Bury St. Edmunds, England, are upset at the way the borough council tested the stability of stones in the local cemetery. One woman from nearby Thurston was especially miffed:

"After speaking to the stone masons, it appears they placed a large mechanical device on the headstones, causing many of them to collapse under the pressure," she said.

"It seems a rather unfair way to test them and, while I am able to pay for the remedial work, I'm sure a lot of people, especially widows and the elderly, will not be able to." [Link]
