    anybody else read the article on the leaf blower ban in N.C. city north carolina in lawn and landscape page 23? i almost found myself laughing reading some of the quotes from the mayor.....straight from the article,

    "a leaf blower doesnt do any real work, in my opinion, he says. people use them for so many other things and it just doesnt work. all it does is move dust from my yard to your yard"

    "the best solution is a rake".

    What crack is this guy smoking. he doesnt have the slightest clue on what the impact of a leaf blower ban would be. im not even from this area and it doesnt effect me. i can only imagine those who live there. id be furious with this moron. next thing you know theyll be forming beautification committees cause everyones houses wont be up to par with the look they want lol

    That is crazy. I cant belive someone would even think about a ban like that. Thats like saying bagging grass should be banned because all they do is fill up landfills.
