    She buried him in the backyard

    I just want to point out the backwards thinking of government.

    "The zoning enforcement officer said private burials are not addressed in zoning regulations and therefore not allowed."

    What they're saying is if it is not specifically permitted, it is illegal.
    This is backwards.
    If something is not specifically prohibited, then it should be legal.

    Yeap, That's the way I've always understood it. There's no law allowing me to eat lasagna on Tuesdays either, but, since there's no law prohibiting me from doing it, it's legal.

    I thought the same exact thing when I read that earlier this morning. I am betting that will be a part of her argument. If it's not she needs a better lawyer in my opinion!

    Here in rural unincorporated Horry County there is no law prohibiting shooting in your backyard, so it is legal.
    By their thinking it would illegal because there is no law allowing it.
    Had the same problem back in Ohio in the township we lived in, no law allowing something so it was illegal to do whatever that something was.

    Don't get between a fat man and his pasta...Come and Take It!

    And considering my current frame of mind, I'm more than willing to send it to 'em after I've eaten and processed it<eg>

    Boy, this could open a whole can of Libertarian worms! Just because there is not a statute regulating something does not meant that it is always a good idea to do it. BTW, I am not sure what the laws are here in IA concerning such things -- I left it up to the funeral home. We scattered a church member's ashes on farmland, and her brother plowed them in when he was prepping for Spring planting.......
    HE thinks, therefore I am! <><

    Yeah libertarians will be all over the cities argument that we don't have a law for it so it is illegal... I know this libertarian is!

    You bring up something else I was thinking Revolver, you left it up to the funeral director, so did this lady. Isn't the expectation that even a halfway decent funeral director to know where you can bury a body? I know I would.
