    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I don't think that crepe myrtles were a part of the original intent of the ordinance when it was passed.
    Crepe mytles aren't like other trees either, they are much easier to trim than a lot of others. You can trim them most anytime.

    Ridiculous.
    Those trees do not belong to the government. They belong to the church. If the church wants to cut the trees down, set them on fire, or even pour picante sauce over them, it's their business, not the government's.

    Actually Charlotte isn't "The City of TREES"... its "The Queen City"
