I came across "Phonehenge" on facebook--maybe it was a link from SaveCalifornia.com.  This sad story has touched me and led me to pray for a better outcome for this family.  The LA county bureaucrats are not only making Kim tear down his work of art, but insisting that very poor people tear down their small homes--leaving them homeless.  I wonder why the county wants to get rid of these people.  I also wonder how this is legal and why the right to personal property is no longer the law of the land.

This story is from the LA Times--an excellent expose' of what is going on.

This video tells Kim's side of the story and shows where he lives and what he built.  I'd say the structure is comparable in quality to the treehouse at Disneyland.
