Kansas legislature passes ride safety bill

Kansas legislators agreed Friday to strengthen the state’s lax oversight of amusement park rides after a lawmaker’s 10-year-old son was killed while riding a waterslide. Under the legislation, amusement park rides would have to be inspected every year by qualified inspector. Current law requires inspections but allows amusement park owners do the checks themselves.

I Voted up that quickly, because it sounded like something I agree with, but then I realized that I didn't understand, and rather than just let it slide, I want to ask you what "Barn door" means, because I am more curious than modest.

Edit - No pun intended.

No, in that case we say "Kennywood's open".

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

Well, in this case there are still horses in the barn, so closing the door is probably a good move...
