not only is the city gubmint forcing the installation of polluting street lights, my neighbors are now trying to raise my already high monthly homeowners' dues to pay for 'prettier' lights. the same folks who didn't want them are now asking me to pony up for these polished turds.
the idea that these lights are going to make us safe is preposterous. the back of every house, complete with all-glass door, is bathed in darkness, providing ample opportunity for crime. these lights are just a feel-good non-answer. get a dog or get a gun. or better yet, a gun dog.
