Not really that much, its an interesting problem and it was killing the town. All kinds of legal questions tho’.

There was one such issue in Houston that really pissed me off. There’s this fantastic BBQ restaurant on Clay Rd that had been there for probably two decades. Across the street was some pasture area that got sold to some church. The church puts up a tent (literally) and the city demanded that the restaurant had to move back about 50 feet due to the ordinances if they wanted to continue serving beer. They had the land. Had to build a whole new restaurant building at their cost because that church bought the property across the street. Seems the church should have been the one required to build back 50 feet since they were the late-comers.
