I love it. Sounds like Texas. Only on Texas ground can one be a Texan.

Basically cohousing does the same thing. You have to be in a meeting to "vote." 
In meetings we are real cohousers.

I once attended a cohousing team meeting in which the only agenda item was 
confirming or setting up other meetings. Literally. I kept waiting for an 
agenda item other than mine to be raised but it was: "Okay, Mark have you set 
up the meeting with the _______ team? Sam, you and Nancy are meeting about the 
____ next week right?" For at leasts 45 minutes.
