Local government stupidity, continued

I’ve written before about the treehouse saga in Clinton, MS. To recap, a Clinton family built a really nice treehouse, not just for their kids but for the entire neighborhood. Clinton has always proclaimed itself as a family-oriented bedroom suburb of Jackson, the state capitol. But the city of Clinton declared this an accessory building and demanded that it be removed. A judge ruled against the city, but that hasn’t stopped them. As ridiculous as it seems, Clinton is still fighting this. They’re appealing it to the state Supreme Court. Go here to read about it.
