The greatest tyrants are in city hall

Busy Bodies are the enemy. They take great exception to the way other people live, and they claim harm to their delicate sensibilities when they see something they don't like.

I've lived where building permits were required for replacing a sink, where I couldn't store a small boat at the back of my lot, where I couldn't sell a house until the closing spring on the back screen door was replaced and the functioning stopper in the bathroom sink was fixed to their specifications.
