Back in July, I ran across the story of Kenneth Robinson and "adverse possession" laws. Essentially, he moved in and squatted in an abandoned house. He's been evicted. The article shows a picture of him vacuuming. I was under the impression he was living there without utilities. I wonder how he got them turned on but I'm not interested in reading his website to find out how he was able to do that. Not a big fan of squatters rights.
Double nickel today. Gonna have a nice lunch, I think.
PSA: If you are turning off of a highway into a parking lot, please see to it that you are completely out of the highway before you come to a COMPLETE STOP.

Quote of the Day
The legal theory underlying the vesting of title by adverse possession is that title to land must be certain. Since the owner has, by his or her own fault and neglect, failed to protect the land against the hostile actions of the adverse possessor, an adverse possessor who has treated the land as his or her own for a significant period of time is recognized as its owner.

Quote from said blog: "Besides reminding us all that what the world needs now is an Eastwood-Springsteen buddy cop movie (he doesn’t say that exactly, but come on, we do), it’s as trenchant a piece of commentary on pop culture icons and the way they reflect, and reflect upon, the world we live in as you’re likely to find."
