Play dumb the city is

Dear Editor:If anyone out there owns a big expensive house or condo with a south-facing deck and would like to have a fireworks watching party this Fourth of July except there are some pesky trees partially blocking your view, fear not.Even if the trees are on your property or someone else’s, just go ahead and whack them down to your own specifications. First of all, no one from City Hall will much care, and if they do they won’t be able to figure out it was you anyway.Now, just in case some snoopy individual or neighbor does start putting two and two together, all you do is just act dumb and hide behind an LLC or some other corporate name and avoid any personal embarrassment that may incur.Don DixonAspen
