Stampeded by an Extraordinary Name

The world’s largest living things are being threatened by the tip toes of tiny human feet. The New York Times reported recently that the heretofore secret location of a grove of some of the biggest trees known to man has been exposed by sleuthing amateur arborists. Tree lovers can love these trees to death by simply walking upon their shallow and delicate root system. Since it can’t unring this bell, the state is installing a boardwalk so strollers can admire without trampling.

A spokesperson for project attributed much of the interest in the grove to its name, “The Grove of Titans.”  “Who can resist?”, she said. 

We would have loved the assignment: Create a name to keep people away.
