Please let the
Flanders nightmare end
    IF YOU sued your neighbor for announcing that his yard was available as an
alien landing pad, the judge who heard your case would be annoyed at you for
wasting his time.
    A cop who started giving tickets to people for thinking about driving too fast
wouldn’t be kept on the force too long.
    And a bill in Congress to prohibit people from leaping over skyscrapers
would be considered an annoyance.
    That’s because the law is too important to be turned into a joke, the taxpay-
ers’ money is too valuable to be wasted on frivolous pursuits, and every law is
supposed to be interpreted in a way that benefits the public, rather than serving
a small group’s bizarre, arbitrary or fantastical agenda. These points are all obvi-
    Yet there they were Thursday morning in the board of supervisors chambers
in Salinas: Three judges and their staffs, several highly paid attorneys, a crowd
of spectators and numerous journalists, all to consider an utterly ridiculous argu-
ment foisted by a tiny group of overzealous preservationists upon the people of
Carmel. The citizens of this city, the California Court of Appeal for the Sixth
District was told, cannot be permitted to sell Flanders Mansion, no matter how
much they may want to, without violating state environmental laws. That’s what
                                                                                                                                                                  “I enjoyed living in 213 and 415,
the preservationists say.                                                                                                                                      but I’m so glad we moved back to 831.”
    And what scenario did they present to buttress their argument that impermis-
