What is wrong with our culture??

http://consumerist.com/2011/07/woman-faces-jail-time-for-growing-veggies-in-front-yard.html

This woman faces fines and possible jail time for trying to grow vegetables in a neighborhood where yards are required to hold "suitable, live plant material." She argues that the vegetables are live, they are plants, they are material, and—this is where opinion comes in—they are suitable.

She has a blog now, and is getting tremendous support. Rumor has it that the city of Oak Park has shut down their email system in response to a flood of complaints.

I'd rather see citizens fined for watering lawns in arid regions or for laying down concrete where food or native habitat could have grown.
