I have learned a lot from Kaleb and I have been a farmers wife for many years. I enjoy learning about better ways to control weeds, moles and armadillas, etc. Keep up the good work, I'll be picking your brain again I am quite sure.

so. Since you seem to believe that weethhr the hoop postdates the law is somehow important (it is not: what's important is that Delaware has such a law in the first place, and that the police, who enforce laws in their discretion all the time as any pretty girl who's ever cried her way into a "warning ticket" could inform you) you should reconsider your entire thesis.This is not an easement. An easement is a property right (the right to interfere with another's exercise of title) for which compensation is paid in advance.This is a 2005 law, according to your link, that says essentially, basketball hoops near any public street must be cut down. The specific law is Delaware Code 17-149.(c)(1) Legislative findings. The General Assembly finds that the proliferation of sporting and recreational activity taking place in and adjacent to the State's public rights-of-way is growing along with the State's population, and further finds that such mixed-use activity threatens the safety of the recreants as well as members of the motoring public.(2) In keeping with the General Assembly's legislative findings herein, and in order to promote safe neighborhood recreation, the Department shall make every effort to remove from public rights-of-way devices such as basketball hoops, hockey goals, shuffleboards and the like. The Department is further authorized and directed to establish such regulations as may be necessary and appropriate to enforce this activity. The regulations may include provisions for recreational use agreements with public agencies or other responsible entities for State property under Department control, that the Department may determine as suitable for these activities. Notwithstanding any other provision of state law to the contrary, any repeat offender found in violation of the regulations adopted pursuant to this subsection shall pay a fine of $25 per incident.Mike has a point about you. Your "Yes it's terrible, but " is the battlecry of all the lickspittles who enable lawmakers to cut down basketball hoops.We need more people like the man and woman in this video, and more journalists like the people who caught this horror on tape and published it to the world, and less "Yes it's terrible, but " conditioning us, as a population, to accept this shit.
