Great post. I have re-blogged this one.

Dear Sandy Bottom Construction Company,
The neighborhood didn’t say anything when you ran heavy equipment until late in the evenings, shaking all of our houses on stilts so badly that things fell from shelves. We didn’t comment when your bulldozer plowed down our street signs and turned them into garbage. We silently watched as your lot clearing crew ravaged the Earth and cut down every single tree, except one. The one you kept was quickly butchered and may not even live long enough to see the Sold sign. Do you think maybe you could have taken a page from Davenport’s manual of considerate construction and left a few trees for privacy and climate control’s sake?
I had to keep reminding myself that you were trying to build a home for someone and not just a sidewalk.
