holy cows alive- i’m so incensed it is taking a supreme effort of self-control on my part not to rip the guy to shreds who is being interviewed against Randy Zeilinger (a man in garden city, Michigan who want to keep a few chickens). my first instinct was to take notes as I watched this news clip and to write you my blow-by-blow, but-as always- I am trying to keep this blog family friendly, so I will let you form your own opinions. meanwhile, I am off to draft a respectful letter to city officials in garden city (what the heck is it with government officials in Michigan?!?!?!?!?!?!?!) and try to get in touch with randy and give him contact info for my former attorney. once more, I count myself so lucky to live in seattle, and once more, I find myself so incredulous at how petty/nosy/ignorant/obnoxious/etc etc etc people can be…

ugh…
