"But sadly enough, if we were to employ the Rose/Saundra tactics against the Girl Scouts we would find something. I am sure if we followed this tactic and hired a lawyer, harassed every Girl Scout, and combed through every law in the state, county and city we would find something. Perhaps we would pin them with false advertising. Because I know for fact that Girl Scout cookies are not really made with real Girl Scouts and it says "Girl Scout Cookies" right on the box!"
I am personally glad that "Girl Scout Cookies are not really made with real Girl Scouts." Cannibalism is not to my taste.
Donovan sounds like one those wonderful people who nonchalantly stand around when someone is being beaten and raped or an old lady is being mugged.
I am sorry he does not believe in equal protection/application of the law, that he is OK with unfair tax assessment/collection practices, violations of zoning codes that adversely affect many of those the codes were originally designed to protect, etc.

I admire the skill, energy, and tenacity of Rose and Saundra is pursuing those who intentionally seek to cheat and, worse yet, to rule and to control the lives of the rest of us. In my opinion, this county would be a lot better off with more Saundras and Roses and a lot fewer Donovans.
