Robin Williams' latest movie is "Patch Adams", based on the life of Dr.
Hunter Adams, founder of the Gesundheit! Institute in West Virginia.  The
movie depicts the creation of the Institute, and interested folks (like me)
who research the name will find it's a cohousing community offering free
medical care.  Dr. Adams' book "Gesundheit!" contains an extensive
bibliography which includes a lengthy section devoted to "Community
Living".  Great resources and great media links for promoting cohousing.
