LOL! Very, Very Funny!

Some news stories are so hilarious and beyond belief they don’t need embellishment.

A Homeowners Association in Orange County, California sponsors an annual fiction writing contest. The Rossmoor HOA says the contest is open to any member of the community with a good imagination and a yarn to tell. 

A suggestion: How about a piece of fiction about how peaceful the typical American Homeowners Association is? How about some fiction about the annual HOA meeting being a place where love and neighborliness dominate neighborhood affairs? 

On this Easter Sunday, 2013, I just wanted to bring you a good chuckle.

Ward Lucas is a longtime investigative journalist and television news anchor. He has won more than 70 national and regional awards for Excellence in Journalism, Creative Writing and community involvement. His new book, "Neighbors At War: the Creepy Case Against Your Homeowners Association," is now available for purchase. In it, he discusses the American homeowners association movement, from its racist origins, to its transformation into a lucrative money machine for the nation's legal industry. From scams to outright violence to foreclosures and neighborhood collapses across the country, the reader will find this book enormously compelling and a necessary read for every homeowner. Knowledge is self-defense. No homeowner contemplating life in an HOA should neglect reading this book. No HOA board officer should overlook this examination of the pitfalls in HOA management. And no lawyer representing either side in an HOA dispute should gloss over what homeowners are saying or believing about the lawsuit industry.

    I think for fun you should enter the contest! Go for it, Ward…take Rossmoor for a spin on the dance floor before they throw you out the clubhouse door! Oh wait, it was a fiction story not a rhyme they were looking for!
