Brickbat: The Grass Is Always Greener


Charm Moment /

A St. Peters, Missouri, woman's battle with the city over her yard has reached a federal appellate court. A city ordinance requires all lawns to be at least half turf grass. But Janice Duffner says she's allergic to that. Her yard is filled with bushes and flowers. It also has a small fountain. A neighbor complained, and the city is trying to force her to plant at least some grass.
