Bugs Bunny, Libertarian Hero

Bugs Bunny was never one to knuckle under to arbitrary power.  I always like the episode when he protects his home from a freeway development, and eventually the freeway ends up going around his home, which has been turned into a pillar of concrete.  I am reminded of all this by this picture from Radley Balko of a woman who would not sell out to developers in China.

    See the link below for a slightly different take on the story linked on Reason (the Globe & Mail featured the woman's husband, a "former kung fu champion".

    The image above makes it appear as though an access road leads up to the front door, and unfortunately the online edition of the Globe & Mail uses the same pic. The print edition of the newspaper uses an alternate photo taken from the opposite side which makes it even more clear how a propos the Bugs Bunny reference is (one of my favourite episodes) as the home is clearly sitting about 30 feet above the pit.
