Government is just what we call the things we decide to do together

. . . like ticketing Pittsburghers for parking in their own driveways. As much as $2400. For parking in your own driveway. Tar and feathers are too good for these people.

Pittsburgh isn’t the first to try to squeeze a little extra revenue from its beleaguered residents, either; Washington, DC tried it a few years ago. DC wanted to sell parking permits for driveways, but Pittsburgh appears to be more interested in the fines, since they are keeping quiet the option to buy a permit.
