    “Why I’ve lived here for forty-odd years and I’ve never seen that stream flood!”

    “Who would want to open a dirty bookstore here? We’re all good people in this community.”

    “That cul-de-sac is permanent. The real-estate agent said so.”

    “What do I need a building permit for? It’s just a deck.”

    “He’ll never sell that farm.”

    “They can’t develop those woods, my kids play down there.”

    “Why, our septic system works just fine. Look how green the grass is.”

    “Why can’t I have pigs? My grand pap did. They’re what you call grandfathered.”

    “We don’t want a cell tower in our neighborhood! Excuse me, I’ve got a call.”
