Town Hall Meeting
Our Community of "55 and better" is nearing completion, or in the process of transition, which means the builder is almost done. We've lived in it a little over 4 years, and I have to say the homeowners who are running things seem to have improved the quality of life. They're constantly trying to add to the list of activities, get better pricing for services, etc.
However what's most striking to me about the mixture of residents, it's like a smaller version of the country. There are different nationalities, political persuasions, and just about every other characteristic you would find on larger scale. We have Democrats, Republicans, Tea Partiers, and I'm sure a few other fringes.
The most glaring similarity is the community is at Civil War. Why shouldn't it be? The country's Civil War never ended; we're still fighting, especially during this election.
So at the meeting tonight, I scanned the room, and noticed there were quite a few "secessionists" not present at the meeting.
Oh well, I just try to get along with everyone, I don't engage in politics, so as not to cut my books sales in half.
