    I just saw the funniest news story I've seen in a while. We live in the boonies just outside of the suburbs just outside the city. Well, urban sprawl has been a hot issue around here for quite some time. Nine times out of ten it seems any issues are always resolved in favor or the spawlers and not the sprawlees who've been here forever. Today a farm family with two 4H pigs were being harassed. When they showed the footage I about fell outta my chair. Here were these two pigs and their obviously been-there-for-years shelter stuck right in the backyard of all these fancy new condos. Maybe 50 feet from the back doors of these places. Of course the owners of the condos are complaining. The newscaster interviewing the guy actually said to him "Well if you didn't like pigs, why did you buy a condo in an area zoned for agriculture?" The look on the guy's face was PRICELESS. Mark one down for the sprawlees! [​IMG]

    (Now before some of you go flaming me, just think. They could have been complaining about our chickens.)

    I wish I could have seen his face.

    I really don't get people who move somewhere and then want to change the neighborhood. Gets under my skin.
