Meanwhile in Clayton

2008_08_farmstand.jpgWhile most of the East Bay is in robbery crisis mode, the city of Clayton is neck-deep in another controversy. A few weeks ago, the mayor ordered the police department to shut down a vegetable stand run by two girls, ages 11 and 3. Last night, the planning commission ruled that the children could return to their evil sidewalk business: "They'll once again sell produce like the $1 melons and 50-cent radish bunches grown in their yard ... There will likely be limits on hours of operation, parking and traffic flow and on how often the girls can open the stand each week." Bless you, Bay Area. [CCT]
