nature on trial:  fighting for freedom of choice in landscaping
Still Waitng

Over four months have passed since my trial (December 15, 2005). I still have heard no word from the court about a decision.

Spring seems to be coming early this year (possibly due to our unusually warm winter), and our meadow is starting to grow again.

Perhaps the judge is waiting to deliver a decision when it actually counts (after all, you cannot mow a meadow that is covered in snow, so a February decision of "guilty" would have been strange). On the other hand, maybe the judge is taking the case seriously and reviewing all of the documents and case law with close attention. At the very least, I am certain that he is taking the case seriously.

I took a walk around our neighborhood yesterday and observed that three of the four nearby meadows (the cornerstones of my equal protection argument) have still not been mowed.
