It's interesting to note that in both clips, Kevin Rulkowski's argument seems to hinge on Webster's Dictionary's definition of "suitable" being "common." Perhaps the city planner is using an old copy of MWD, because merriam-webster.com defines "suitable" as:
a : adapted to a use or purpose - suitable for kitchen useRegardless of the actual definition, I think it's pretty asinine for a city waste time and money in an effort to jail someone for growing food in their yard. Julie faces a pretrial hearing on the 26th. If convicted, she faces up to 93 days in jail. You can follow Julie's battle and find some great recipes for produce on her blog, Oak Park Hates Veggies. I'm really glad Ann Arbor doesn't have and/or enforce ordinances that are quite this backwards.
b : satisfying propriety : proper - suitable dress
c : able, qualified - a suitable candidate for the job
