Everybody’s in favor of progress.  Most people would love to have a new factory or a new Walmart close by.  But not too close – you know, traffic problems, noise and smoke, loitering, etc.  So build it close, but build it over there.

These people want it built, but Not In My Back Yard.  This is known as a NIMBY attitude.

I ran across a new one today: BANANA.  Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anything.  I think the term for them is Luddite.

Poor Ned Ludd.  He’d probably jump out of his wooden shoes if one of these CAVE People approached him.
