Lest London Fall

The stone which legend says was placed in London by Brutus the Trojan has a new protector: Chris Cheek, the manager of a sporting goods shop.

Proverbially, London will be safe as long as the stone remains in place. Unfortunately, the building where it now rests is scheduled to be demolished. Cheek has already stopped one builder from taking a chisel to the stone. He doesn't consider himself superstitious, but admits he believes in the stone's protection.
