From Jaci Woods, a real estate broker in Irvine, California, explaining the charm of our little planned community:

“The people that don’t like following rules say they can’t stand it. I saw a man on a ladder starting to paint the side of his house lavender,” she said, noting the color was banned by the homeowners association. “It’s the ones like that that we guard against.”

True that.  You can’t be too careful in these parts.  In fact, my neighbor’s air conditioner has been on the fritz for the past few weeks and its racket has become really annoying.  I’m thinking about having him deported with extreme prejudice.

THE END...

of our fiscal year is Thursday, June 30, and we have a much larger fundraising gap than we can easily manage with only days left to go.

Right now is no time to come up short: If you value the hard-hitting, democracy-protecting, justice-advancing journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us keep charging as hard as we possibly can with a much-needed and much-appreciated donation today.
