What would you do and why would you do it?

Time for another round of the Neighborhood Game.

The rules are simple. I tell you about a few things that are happening in a fictional neighborhood, and you think about what you would do and why you would do it. If you're really passionate, take a few minutes to comment.

In a few days, I post my reactions.

Ready? Here we go.

The neighborhood has grown so it touches an Amish community. Your local city government insists that the building code applies to the Amish. The Amish say that it doesn't because of religious reasons.

An advisory board has submitted a list of books that should be pulled from the shelves at the local library. These books include Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, The Way Things Ought To Be by Rush H. Limbaugh III, Sex by Madonna, Rush Limbaugh Is A Big Fat Idiot by Al Franken, Call of the Wild by Jack London, State and Revolution by Lenin, The Satanic Bible by Anton Szandor Lavey, and The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian by Sherman Alexie.

The mayor has proposed a tax on all non-diet soda.

The local police want to limit the powers of the new Citizen Review Board so that it can only request documents and information that is part of the public record. During an investigation, almost nothing is part of the public record, which means that the CRB can't do it's investigation until after the police force finishes it's internal investigation.

Your neighbor across the street thinks you use too much water. She's asked the city council to set up limits on water usage.

What do you think?

What would you do?

Why would you do it?
