The Post article was, I thought at first, a joke...a satire. But then, I realized, it was serious. What she describes is unlike the cohousing I live in. Although we share a commitment to community, no one is home-schooled, there is plenty of sugar at our pot-lucks, and we have no cedar shingles on our roof. Where was the balance in this article?
