I guess I'm happy for the rah-rah publicity. Maybe it will help break through with the developers and the bankers. But the lack of any mention of cohousing as a useful idea for lower-income housing development -- or any mention of the many communities that have struggled long and hard for a way to make that a reality -- leaves a sour taste with me. Part of me says, "That's USA today," the epitome of mainstream journalistic superficiality that I know so well, having worked in it for a decade and a half. And maybe those of you who spoke with the reporter mentioned the subject, or maybe not (I'm curious to know). Can we anyway all agree to make a point in the future of noting that we're not all middle-class professionals who can pay 10 percent down four years in advance? Thanks. David Mandel, Sacramento
