Was the Declaration of Independence a cohousing moment?

Hello Fellow Cohousers,

        As I see it, the Declaration of Independence had to be a cohousing
moment.  After all:

        o  It took about a year to decide on it.

        o  The draft was written by a committee.

        o  It was adopted by consensus after virtually an infinite number
of meetings and discussions.

        o  The vote to declare independence took place on July 2, but by
the time they finished going over the document, removing whole sections,
rewording others, and finally voting to adopt the whole thing, it was July 4.

        o  It took the rest of the month to get the word out to all the
colonies.


        See?  It *had* to be a cohousing moment!


Happy Independence Day!
David Heimann
