All that is needed is collectivism. Read this story in the Lexington, KY Herald. I have no problem with voluntary homeowners associations per se, at least until some member or members take it upon their bad, authoritarian selves to pull this kind of scam.

Too bad that it falls to government, seemingly, to try to remedy this situation, perhaps too late for Ms. Boak.
