"The weakest among us" Does it take a village to raise a child? Ray Suarez, senior correspondent at PBS's "The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer," thinks so. Suarez, who used to host the National Public Radio program "Talk of the Nation," believes that neighborhoods and communities have as much responsibility for the welfare of children as do parents and families. He spoke last week in Minneapolis at a forum sponsored by the Children's Law Center of Minnesota. (MPR Midday, 10/12/2004) About 40 minutes into his speech he related extended observations about a visit to a cohousing community in northern Virginia. His description was quite thorough and complimentary tho he was skeptical of the time consuming decision making process he observed. Here is a link to the archived (audio) of his speech): http://tinyurl.com/5xrnb It would also be available by searching at http://www.mpr.org I'd like to see Ray's cohousing comments transcribed and posted to cohousing-L. Any volunteers? I think a thoughtful critique from an outside observer carries a lot of weight. Fred -- Fred H.
