Shady Grove

I was looking for news about my local town on Google News this morning and I ran across this ad from the Union Tribune disguised as news, LAST CHANCE TO OWN AT KB HOME’S SHADY GROVE IN FALLBROOK.

This development is an encapsulation of the absurdity of the American mercantile system. They have been trying to peddle these poor things for years. Kauffman and Broad bought what was actually once a shady grove, mowed it down to bare soil with nary a tree in sight and then marketed the development as Shady Grove. Serious semantical hubris. Shady all right but never quite a fit in a community that is still lucky enough to have a few real shady groves left.
