When Rich White People Attack
Posted by scott at May 07, 2008 08:43 AM
Annie gets a very interestingly shaped no-prize for bringing us the true story of what happens when rich Americans in the West get into a tiff with each other. You can take the redneck out of his tacky neighborhood, but...
eMail this entry!
As a redneck myself, I say God bless Mr. "Cactus." Having followed this story in the papers, I recall that the neighbor made clear that his complaints were not being driven by concern over zoning ordinances or even neighborhood aesthetics, but by fears of global warming and an opposition to any and all development that wasn't provably carbon-neutral.
Neighbor sent out the lawyers, builder sent out the sarcasm. Sadly, in the end the neighbor won (getting an apology is hardly a victory, it costs nothing and he'll just go on to harass the next person who dares build a home improvement on his watch).
