Just another viewpoint from someone who lives in the same community w/ Sharon -- I LIKE the flyers -- don't find them offensive. While I don't often agree w/ the viewpoint expressed in them, I like knowing what's "cooking" out there. I think it's an expression of what others in the community are interested in and so I want to know what THEYare concerned about enough to leave a flyer. I consider it a service by those who put them there. I know that others in our community feel as Sharon does --a viewpoint from one who is very considerate and concerned about how our CH looks. She has been a real stand for this. It's just not the only viewpoint about how our CH might look. This is what makes cohousing so interesting to live in -- we get to work all this stuff out while people in traditional neighborhoods get to ...do what? It's been so long I forget what I used to do before I discussed flyers by the mailboxes. See...it's not about flyers...it's about relationships: creating them, splintering them, redeeming them over and over again -- and that is endlessly fascinating to me. (Eloquent thoughts for 9:30 a.m. -- this is what happens when I eat a peanut butter sandwich for breakfast.) I can't wait to see what kind of email I get from my community on this one... :-) Ann Zabaldo Takoma Village Cohousing Washington, DC. -- America's Hometown! zabaldo [at] earthlink.net ----- Original Message ----- From: "Sharon Villines" <sharon [at] sharonvillines.com> To: "Cohousing-L" <cohousing-l [at] cohousing.org> Sent: Thursday, May 23, 2002 2:36 PM Subject: [C-L]_Question: Flyers in the Commonhouse > Do you have policies about what unsolicited flyers, newspapers, > bumperstickers, political buttons, etc., can be left in the commonhouse by > members for others to pick up if wanted? > > I find political solicitations and announcements unwelcome in the > commonhouse except on the bulletin board provided for them.
