Mr. Neill receives sage advice from both sides of the law.  Yet questions remain.  Can a mansion have just one bedroom?  What if the lawn you wanted was no lawn at all?  And what if having no lawn took you off the grid?


  1. The mansion at 3030 Elroy St.
  2. The lawn he wants is no lawn
  3. If they start fighting, keep playing…but if they start shooting, stop

78′s and Unhip:

  1. Coleman Hawkins – Some of these days
  2. James (Beal Street) Clark – You can’t make the grade
  3. Unhip – Eventually
