You may remember my infatuation with the library in the home of some old friends.
I've posted on both of my blogs about Teresa and Ricky's library and wonderful old home. They are both talented, creative people, active in artistic and civic organizations.
In recent months, they have had the most unusual and ridiculous problems with the Metropolitan Planning Commission in Shreveport.
Ricky built a Little Free Library, and the fun began when the MPC sent a notification telling the Edgertons to close the LFL down as it was a commercial venture. (The notification contained two misspelled words...)
The MPC looked pretty foolish when the Facebook posts went viral and newspapers and television (local and national) picked up the story. For a while it seemed the problem was resolved, and then it would get silly all over again. Now one more problem has arisen; it would be funny if it weren't so petty and nonsensical.
You can read more about it on Teresa's blog.
Just one example of the amazing coverage this event has received:
