Bird Watching in Utah

My friend Andrew sent me this.

It was one of those things that I thought was too funny to be real and that it had to be urban legend. 


This is a true story; it happened in Utah and was on the news.

A city councilman, Mark Easton, lives in this neighborhood. He had a
beautiful view of the east mountains, until a new neighbor purchased
the lot below his house and built. Apparently, the new home was 18
inches higher than the ordinances would allow, so Mark Easton, mad
about his lost view, went to the city to make sure they enforced the
lower roof line ordinance. Mark and his new neighbor had some great
arguments about this as you can imagine – not great feelings.

The new neighbor had to drop the roof line – no doubt at great expense.

Recently, Mark Easton called the city and informed them that his new
neighbor had installed some vents on the side of his home. Mark
didn’t  like the look of these vents and asked the city to
investigate.

Fortunately, it was real, or at least covered by a local news agency as a real story.  The full story is here.
