unsuitable activities

Received in email:

A Michigan woman seems to be facing 93 days in the slammer because she put vegetables in her front yard after it had been dug up for sewer work. The issue is pegged to an ordinance that refers to what is "suitable" for yard planting. The town maintains that "suitable" means that everyone else is doing it.

In a country where hard times and rising food and energy costs are taking their toll, you might imagine the conformists would mute their enthusiasms a bit. The woman plans to fight.
