Size doesn't matter

Awhile back I posted about the controversial proposal to install a giant chess board in Mill Valley, California's Lytton Square. Months later and things are still far from settled, but in a recent move to find a compromise, Mill Valley civic leader John Cuttler has proposed reducing the size of the board from 16 x 16 to 10 x 10. Unfortunately, his proposal was met with swift denunciation by the critics of the plan.

"If it's not broken, don't fix it," said Elaine Gentile, a leading opponent who dismissed the new proposal.... "This is like a sacred historical spot," she said.

Like a sacred spot? Lytton Square? ... I think you can find it listed right after The Temple on the Mount and the Birthplace of Jesus.
