Isn't it awesome how every story like this contains a version of this statement:
"He's a teddy bear," Brown said. "He's a real lovable, soft, sweet guy."The zoning dispute must have pushed him out of his pleasure zone. My favorite comment, though, comes from Shawn Nelson at Duke's Gunsmithing:
"People knew he was building the armored bulldozer, but they didn't know why he was building it."I guess they presumed that this "teddy bear" was going to use his retrofitted wheels for the purposes of forest management.
People in privacy-free Modernist dwellings shouldn't throw projectiles, though. There's a guy down the street from me building a nuclear attack submarine. But I persist in the delusion that he's going to deploy it in the spirit of his idol Jacques Cousteau.
