|Gov. Scott Walker playing Croquet|
Today is Superbowl Sunday and I was musing on what sports I like to watch. I do not like to watch football. I prefer croquet. Why? The simple answer is that I find there is more to learn about the world by watching vicious people behaving in a civilized way than ostensibly nice enough people behaving viciously. Croquet players are much more dangerous than football players.

THE LAW FIRM OF DENNIS. P. BLOCK AND ASSOCIATES 1 800 77-EVICT (38428)
She and her neighbors carefully read the lease and found a very serious problem in the terms. on page one the lease states:
2. TERM: The premises are leased on the following lease term: (please check one item only) ______ month to month (OR) __x____ until __________________.
but then on page 4 it says this:
18. TERMINATION OF LEASE/RENTAL AGREEMENT: If this lease is based on a fixed term, pursuant to paragraph 2, then at the expiration of said fixed term this lease shall become a month to month tenancy upon the approval of LANDLORD. Where said term is a month to month tenancy, either party may terminate this tenancy by the serving of a 30 day written notice.
Had this lovely lady and WWII concentration camp survivor signed this document she would have given Ms. Hardin the right to evict her in 30 days. When this was explained to the burly agent, he agreed this was actually true. The neighbors, a couple of aging hipsters and members of the gentry themselves, credit years of watching Scoobie Doo for their desire to foil Ms. Hardin's plans and help the little old lady. There is the desire to grow up and be one of those pointed to when the bad guy says "if it hadn't been for you meddling kids!"
So if you are a renter in Hafo Safo watch a couple of old episodes (before scrappy ruined everything) of Scoobie and then go out and meet your neighbors. You never know when you might get the chance to come to their defense.
