Dandelions are beautiful.  They are highly nutritious.  They support bees which are a very important part of every ecosystem, not to mention our food crops.  Good wine can be made from them.  A good coffee substitute can be made from them.  They can add some interest to your otherwise very boring and ecologically damaging lawn.  Kids love them.  Poisoning dandelions with toxic chemicals is ignorant!  The foregoing eruption is an extremely condensed and sanitized version of what went through my mind (a kind of very rough draft) this afternoon when I drove by a neighbor poisoning dandelions.
