Re: Do not forget....
Well bully for him IF they want to give their products away then let them,but don't expect others to go without their due payment.You can't pay your bills with "beer and hugs" even if you are an amateur.As for the free ticket(s) what concert would they be for.

"If they cant find a willing resident, then the site that has the least % of footprint to pavement ratio should be used.. "I think that is what these councils want but the percentage is 0%,and the only way to do that is to recess them in to a wall Expensive!
They have a hobby it's called objecting(to everything and anything).
Re: probably preserved it better than the library would have
By George I think he's got it (don't know what it is but he's got it)!
As this ExOfficer Opted to take his licks in a millitary court and got 41/2 years his time in a military prison is not going to be a walk in the park,he is going to feel like he has done at least double that.
