What happened to "Freedom" and "Personal Property Rights"?  Zoning
boards have gone way overboard.  Where does control end?  I keep hearing
this word "eyesore" thrown around.  Well, I happen to find tall towers
quite beautiful.  People pay money to fly to Paris and look at that
big "eyesore" called the Eiffel Tower.  People pay millions of dollars to
buy homes in the San Francisco Marina district where they have a view
of the Golden Gate Bridge out the front door.  I happen to think the color
of my neighbors house is an "eyesore", but I don't feel it is my right to
control everything they do.  Who died and left "City Planners" in charge?
