    I don't know which is worse, the neighbor, or the city for passing a ridiculous law. Actually, it's definitely the neighbor. What a horrible person.

    Agreed. If the lady was doing something really annoying, then the neighbor should have talked to them. I don't like the idea of snitching on your neighbors.

    It is a law because some of us live next to neighbors who would be running a yard sale year around... But like I offered up on her Facebook page, if she is willing to move the sale - I'll host it for three weekends! Then someone else can do the same. There are ways around every city ordinance!

    If Jan's so-called "neighbor" had a shred of decency, they'd host the sale themselves, and encourage others to do he same. All remaining within the confines of a law created for reasons completely unrelated to a horridly selfish gesture against somone in need. I hope all the immediate locals take the intiative to host 2 or 3 apiece for Jan so it's an ongoing occurance as long there is anything still up for sale... or not (if you catch my drift). What a mean-spirited oxygen bandit!

    How very true. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Compassionate exceptions are hard to write into a law. Sure, this story is moving but on the other hand, I know people around here would open a permanant year round flea market in their front, back and side yards if given such an 'inch'.

    But if it were a problem, it could be handled by nuisance laws rather than a specific law prohibiting x number of yard sales.

    I will donate $50 to the poor lady. I wish her the best in her remaining months. Just wish she could have watched or read World Without Cancer by G. Edward Griffin years back and she wouldn't have to suffer this fate.
