Treat Property Owners Ethically? What’ll They Think of Next?

We were amazed to learn from the Pacific Legal Foundation Liberty Blog that there is an organization out there named — are you ready? — People for the Ethical Treatment of Property Owners.

Being a Californian and thus an inhabitant of a place where property ownership, notably in the form of undeveloped land, is disfavored even if not yet a crime, we sure recognize the need for such an outfit and  think that its emergence as a litigant is a good thing. But the fact that there is a need for such an outfit — and there sure is — is depressing.
