Of Heroes and Goats: Hero- Andy Law, Goat-Robert B. Ryan President – Beacon Woods Civic Association, Inc.



The "Bored" of the Beacon Woods Civic Association... one pompous un-neighborly group of geriatric curmudgeons. Today's old Goats...


Yesterday, I blogged about a 66 year old guy who could barely put bread on his table, who went to jail because his CIVIC ASSOCIATION tried to force him to fix up his Lawn... No one apparently thought "hey maybe we should just offer to do it for him. Maybe he is too down on his luck and depressed to help himself and since it effects our life too, it would be a nice thing to do." No they thought putting him in jail was a better idea...

But a Former USMC member one Andy Law new exactly what to do. Andy didn't know Mr. Prudente (the fellow who went to jail for having a brown lawn) and it didn't matter to Andy either. He just got in his truck with a few other volunteers and resod the lawn and fixed the sprinkler system that broke (causing the lawn to turn brown in the first place) and got back in his truck and went home.

Now as for Robert B. Ryan, the President of the stuck up Beacon Woods Civic Association, all he was able to do was contact the court after Mr. Law did all the work and say "Yeah judge it's fixed let the poor old man go."

Read the letter the "Uncivil" Civic Association sent to the local paper. They take no responsibility for their un-neighborly behavior. They say (now of course) they tried to help, but it seemed fairly easy if your goal was to help, what had to be done. Just ask one Andy Law. Instead Mr. Ryan blames his civic association member for failing to communicate...

For being a really good neighbor, Andy Law is a That Lawyer Dude Hero. For being a pompous ass, Robert B. Ryan, President of the Beacon Woods Civic Association, and in fact the whole board of the Association get to be That Lawyer Dude Goats.

Oh yeah, for all you Goat Farmers out there, please apologize to your goats...
