Theres good news and bad news.
First, the bad. As we all know, there just arent enough places to play skee-ball in Mount Holly, New Jersey.
Which just aint right.
But fear not. The good news rights that wrong.
I have found the perfect location for skee ball this side of Steel Pier.
Unfortunately for Mount Holly mayor Tom Gibson, that location happens to be where his house now sits.
Hey, stuff happens.

As numerous recent judicial activism cases have demonstrated, judges will continue to misbehave, making new laws and rights from invisible micro dots embedded in 18th century documents as they were written, if they have no direct interest in the out come. Ask anyone who has first rented and then owned, without the use of sub-prime loans, their home the changes that quickly take place after they move in.
Does a former Drill Sargent make a lousy therapist?
Is Ed "too tall" Jones, really "Too Tall"?
If you don't pay your property tax, no matter how outrageous, you lose your house. Simple.
Another way, force the guy to lose his job or relocate him where he gets foreclosed or has to sell. Saves all the formality and cost of legal proceedings of eminent domain !
