I love how someone actually called the police for a gas leaf blower. ________________________________________ Find a Career College near you, www.americolleges.com

@Phil M: Gas leaf blower laws are hot topics in cities that do not have those laws yet. It's more than noise pollution. When Orinda was considering a ban, our Patch writer went to cities such as Los Altos that already had laws on the books: http://patch.com/A-wf4
