Another Reason To Avoid The Silly Tomfoolery That Is Suburban Living

There is another Germantown in Tennessee besides the small neighborhood here in the north end of Nashville.

It is half a state away from Nashville. It is half a world away from the sanity of urban life.

Look at the restrictions planned for residents of Germantown, Tennessee concerning garages and driveways. In urban enclaves we form social and communal bonds called "neighborhood watches" to keep out the "riff-raff." In suburban Germantown, city commissioners send out garage door monitors to find and to punish residents for being the potential victims of crime.
