I don’t like the city coming in my house. I don’t know why and it’s somewhat irrational. I just think that for every inch they pass over the door threshold the more it’s going to cost me.
It’s not irrational at all. A city employee has no right to come into your house just to see if you have the requisite number of smoke detectors.
One of the things I respect most about my adopted home state is the widespread respect for private property rights we have here.
