What do history's most notorious despots have in common with many of the flag-waving, patriotic politicians of our day? Both groups rise to power through the exploitation of fear, which has become a societal plague. There have been widespread casualties. We need an antidote. Feardom offers its readers a much-needed immunization.
When I took the bus this morning, I left my car parked on a nearby road in front of somebody’s house. When I returned to my car after work, I had the following note on my windshield:
I mentally put myself in this family’s shoes to understand how annoying it must be to live by a bus stop and have people frequently park in front of their house. I do find it funny, however, that the author made reference to what they thought my religion must be in an attempt to induce guilt for my alleged wrongdoing against them. The spirit of the letter, in my mind, could be responded to with a similar question of religious affiliation.
My question is: consideration and kindness aside, is it legal for me to park in front of somebody’s house? Am I in violation of some obtuse city statute by parking on a public road in front of somebody’s home?
I googled around and couldn’t find anything helpful. Anybody know?
