Laurie David’s Inconvenient Tennis Court

laurie-and-larry-davidLEAD Al Gorean Laurie David – ex-wife of Curb Your Enthusiasm star Larry David and self-proclaimed “global warming activist” – would be expected to have a robust sense of humour. Laurie meet Larry. It turns out that she does and is an expert in irony:

SELF-proclaimed environmentalist Laurie David is once again paving over protected wetlands in Martha’s Vineyard to make improvements to her Chilmark estate.

A new sun roof?

The Vineyard Gazette reports that David, ex-wife of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star Larry David and executive producer of the global-warming documentary “An Inconvenient Truth,” was fined $900 Tuesday after receiving a citation from the Chilmark conservation commission.

David was cited for violating the Wetlands Protection Act during the construction of a tennis court on her sprawling Chilmark property, when workers installed boards and stones to construct a path to the court.

A misunderstanding.

Maybe it wouldn’t be such a major deal on the Vineyard if the supposed eco-obsessed celebrity hadn’t been cited for the exact same violation four years ago. In 2005, David constructed a stone fire pit, a barbecue area and a children’s theater stage in a wetlands area without a permit.

Because of the repeat offense, Chilmark officials fined David and required her to restore the area.

Tell Larry David – there’s humour in life…
