On The Commons is a weekly radio show dedicated to discussing the many issues surrounding mandatory homeowner associations, the fastest growing form of residential housing in the nation.

One of the definitions for "Community" is that of a group of people sharing common interests. At no time, in recent history, was that sense of "community" more evident than following the terrorist attacks of 9-11-01 when American citizens expressed their sorrow and their resolve to survive by proudly flying the Stars and Stripes. It was definitely an interest Americans, as a whole, had in common.

Another definition of "community" is that of a group seen as forming a distinct segment of society. It is this second definition that best fits a couple of groups of people we will be concerned with this week. The first such "community" includes people who did not need a reason or an excuse to fly the flag. The second "community" that fits this definition is the group that has a long history of being intent on controlling, prohibiting, fining and suing those who dare to fly a flag. Just how far will this "community" go to "enforce" their will and their way of life on residents in HOAs? Hasn't the last two years taught them anything?

On The Commons this week we will pay tribute to those who are fighting to keep Old Glory flying on their property. We will revisit some old friends who shared their stories with us, we will hear about other flag stories, and we will be joined by Roger Johnson, whose flag is still flying, Richard Oulton in whose yard a crater marks the spot where a flag once flew proudly, and George Andres, who is back in court fighting not to lose his home. Please join us On The Commons this Saturday, September 13, 2003. We will pay tribute to the "patriots" amongst us. We will not forget them.
