It's the drought, stupid

A Glendora, California couple was chastised and threatened with fines by the city for a brown lawn. This, in the face of a three-year-long drought affecting the entire state that is so severe, Gov. Jerry Brown just signed legislation enacting mandatory water conservation.

Here's what the city manager, Chris Jeffers, said.

"Conservation does not mean neighborhoods need to deteriorate because property owners want (the) landscape to die or go unmaintained," he said.
This is one of those times when I wonder, "Do I really have to say it?" And then I realize I do, because this guy clearly needs to hear it. So:

Get your head out of your ass, Mr. Jeffers.
