Life in the suburbs is good. Except that sometimes it’s not. From time to time, strange headlines catch our attention that normally we’d ignore (there are plenty of other media outlets to cover these types of things), but we’re thinking that some silly juxtaposition could bring an interesting new light to the discussion these types of stories.
So… which one is the best/worst of these two stories? The fight for low density in New Albany or the fight to keep a horse in Marion (which we’re considering a suburb for the moment)?

Ambling along the downtown streets of Newark, Kadie McGregor is bucking the recent spike in gas prices. “I drive a huge truck and you know with gas prices, I drive an old ’89 that gets 11 miles to the gallon,” said McGregor. So instead of ponying up nearly $4 a gallon for gas, she just saddles up Baby, her 16-year-old mare and rides her to work at a farm implement store.
