YUCKO!!!

So what are you gonna do: Should someone be able to live however they want?

I guess this place is just outside the Blue Lake city limits. No mention of whether there's any other houses nearby. If not, isn't the condition of one's home their own personal business?

I don't know, at least when it gets to the point that house has. I can't imagine why anyone would want to stay in a dump like that. Then again, I guess home is where the heart is. Of course, she also doesn't seem to have anywhere else to go.

The question the article fails to answer is: "Is this person causing harm to anyone but herself? Are neighboring households contaminated or property values impacted?" These are the issues considered by local tribes on the reservations when dealing with similar situations. To their credit they tend to come down on the side of liberty.

I know. The article doesn't tell if there's a neighbor problem.

I mentioned some time ago the case of that house on Pine Hill some guy collected tons of trash at. The rats from his place ended up infesting the church next door.

I'm intrigued that you see it as an issue of personal liberty and not mental illness.

I thought Leonid Brezhnev settled that.

Why did God create the Rat in the first place?

Perhaps if we understood that, every other vexing problem would be solved.

Perhaps every answer would fall into place and a New World would move into existence as a result.

Hey! No wisecracks about mental illness, if you please!

An issue of finance? Then why didn't the woman not sell her home long before she let it get to this state? No, this is not an issue of finance.

Maybe she does not want to sell her home and cannot afford to clean it up - she said she is trying.

Although I don't know all the issues involved with the woman, from what I've read, I'm surprised she was able to buy a home in the first place.

As far as mental illness, I know we'd all like to think of others that don't follow our own lifestyle as mentally ill, but she had it together enough to go to the Board of Supervisors and make her case. She can't be too far gone.

I know her. Mental illness is the primary issue.
