Your know your town is too big when ...

Okay, your town is officially too big if you have a "tree board."

Not that I am opposed to government fining people for cutting down poor innocent trees, but who is government to be getting down on other people for doing this? Has anyone noticed the worst perpetrators of tree destruction crimes?

How about those government road construction crews who, to the surprise of most people in the general vicinity, show up one day on some scenic Kentucky road and mow down all the vegetation in sight, include what appear to be centuries old trees so they can widen a road that never sees much traffic anyway just because some local politician got government money for so they could pay local workers (most of whom aren't local anyway) exorbitant prevailing wages.

Put me on a "tree board." I'll save some trees alright.
