town saved from girls gone wild

a couple of kids started a road-side stand to sell their family's surplus veggies, bringing The Man down on them like a hammer. exhibit A for nanny state-ism:
"They may start out with a little card-table and selling a couple of things, but then who is to say what else they have. Is all the produce made there, do they make it themselves? Are they going to have eggs and chickens for sale next," said [douchebag Mayor] Manning.

Lucky for Katie and Sabrina their folks don't have lemon trees.

"Lemonade stands are technically illegal, but they don't last long enough to do anything about," said Manning.
so what if they sell eggs and chickens? and is this guy serious that he would go after lemonade stands if only he could catch them in time? it's amazing what people at any level of gubmint think is their responsibility.
