Peeking in Windows


Broken window shades could earn residents of Euclid, Ohio, up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. A new city ordinance calls for window coverings to work and be hung properly and it bars residents from hanging blankets, garbage bags or other unconventional items over windows. City council members say the law will give the city a nicer image. But one council member denied the rule will turn inspectors into "the fashion police."
