An article in the NYTimes today about the reasons we have a housing shortage — 
single family home zoning. Minneapolis just banned it. And there is a 
generational shift away from it. People want multi-household buildings.

What I do disagree with in the article is that it is “The Government” that is 
responsible for the restriction on multi-household dwellings. The government 
only enforces the laws the legislators pass. Or that the influential people 
pass because their vote counts more. The rest of us will have to stand up and 
look influential.

Change the advertising — Look how many more votes you can get into your 
district by building cohousing!
