The local history club and terrorist society

November 4, 2010


Recently the Township Planning Commission, in its wisdom, decided that one way to prevent medical marijuana "compassion clubs" from popping up like mushrooms in Torch Lake Township would be to eliminate "clubs" from permitted uses in the Zoning Ordinance. This strikes me as akin to prohibiting internet service in order to control spam. I began to think of the kinds of clubs that were thus banished from Township life. Bridge clubs, euchre clubs, book clubs, knitting clubs, model railroad clubs . . .
