Head Smack of the Day

The DMN reports that Farmers Branch has spent $2 million since 2006 on its ill-advised rental ban. And it will cost more before everything is said and done. I think we can honestly say it wasn't the most fiscally conservative windmill the city could've tilted at, considering the course of wisdom likely would've been to keep an eye on another city's case as it made its trek through the judicial system up to the Supreme Court, and then tailored the ordinance accordingly. As the bills mount up, will we see a massive turnover in council seats come the next election?
