Meet the Flintstones
The Flintstones are being hauled into court. At stake is whether a
homeowner can live in a house that is fashioned after the one in the old TV series or whether local government can order the homeowner to conform to more conventional house designs that include vinyl siding and plastic flamingos.
The drama is being played out in Hillsborough, California, a suburb of San Francisco. Florence Fang, 84, has put up statues of Fred and Wilma and a number of dinosaurs on her property. At the entrance, there is a big sign that says “Yabba Dabba Do.”
