"Recently, I've seen two sets of neighborhoods with ripped-up lawns. The neighborhood in West Texas had destroyed grass caused by the remarkable proliferation of this monstrous black pig. ... On the other hand, my own neighborhood is also festooned with torn-up grass, and not because of pigs. A new Internet service provider is in town ... The company negotiated a deal with the city and absorbed unto itself a much-coveted 'utility easement,' which grants the legal right to the company to dig into private property up to a certain amount and under certain conditions."
