The story is told of a community facing a terrible dilemma—what to do about a dangerous cliff over which children were increasingly falling to the valley below.

Ultimately, those who promoted the ambulance prevailed; then proceeded to ridicule and demean those who maintained that it would be far better to construct a fence.
