    Just found out that my neighbor has 25 years worth of newspapers and magazines in his house and six lawnmowers!

    Not sure if I should pity him or call the fire department.

    Def call the fire dept or code enforcement.
    All those newspapers and mags are a fire hazard.

    But mostly only to him, unless they go up during dry season (something we haven't had lately).

    Plus the end result is he will get put into a home.

    I had one of the collector type neighbors a while back, about 20 years ago. It was kind of sad.

    Single, about 65, dressed real well in a $2000 suit.

    Found him on his front porch smoking a cigarette trying to sober up. Helped him into his house to make sure he was ok, and saw all the stuff. Unbelievable. He had every New Orleans Picayune newspaper since about 1965 stacked in his livingroom. With even more stuff in the kitchen.
