Neighborly Feud

Courtesy of the Seattle Times
I'd bet a Hollywood screen writer could not write a storyline more incredible than the following real life story outlined in this recent one from the Seattle Times. Each development becomes more unbelievable than the last. Dozens of lives negatively impacted, hundreds of thousands of dollars of public funds needlessly spent, hundreds of thousands more dollars of private money squandered. All over a stolen and crashed motorcycle. If after reading the story you think there are no more surprises, take a gander at the website of one of the neighbors. Don't miss the "about us" page.

It's stories like this that make me wish that there was a higher power who could step in at some point, stop it, and say "ok folks, you obviously don't have the ability to behave like civilized adults on your own, so I'm taking over the day-to-day operation of your lives", sorta like this episode of Star Trek TOS.
