Because Local Governments Have Nothing Better To Do...


The ostensible reason for banning artificial grass on front lawns is protection FOR THE CHILDREN!!!  Of course, this smells like a potential revenue generator more than anything else, much like red light and speed cameras, both of which are also done in the name of safety.  Further down in the story is this line, which absolutely kills me...
When asked why the fake grass would continue to be allowed in backyards, officials had no answer.
The answer is obvious, silly! It's because children never play in backyards, and thus don't need to be protected there!   Duh!

Seriously, all they have to say is that they think property values will be driven down with fake grass in the front.  Instead, they have to lie to people and tell them it's all about THE CHILDREN!  The issue comes about that the more we say things are all about THE CHILDREN, the more desensitized we will get to the real issues that are affecting actual children, and then we will be in bad shape.  We are already on that path, methinks, and that's a damn shame...
