CA meddlers must have invaded TX

And here I thought I was getting ready to move from the People's Republic of Kalifornia to the state with one of the richest histories of freedom in our country. Then I read this. Long story short, the busybodies on the city staff of University Park, a suburb of Dallas, want to ban homeowners (you know, those people who actually *own* their private property?) from keeping basketball goals attached to the front of their homes or portable goals set up in their driveways. Why? Says head busybody-in-charge Mayor Blackie Holmes, "It's just not as pleasing to the eye."



Awesome. I just love busybodies who think they know best for other people.
