heavy trash

On April 24, 2005, Heavy Trash volunteers deposited bright orange viewing platforms in front of three Los Angeles gated communities; Brentwood Circle, Park La Brea and Laughlin Park. The purpose of these viewing platforms is to draw attention to the phenomenon of gated communities -- the fastest growing form of housing in the United States.

I have a gate; two, in fact. I am evil.

But AFAIK you don't have a security guard.

So no need to send you gate mail just yet.

John Wyndham onto exactly this about 50 years ago in a short story called "Pawley's Peepholes", which had a nice time travel twist as well.

May have to travel down to the Library again.

btw- Looking at some of the comments, my favourite so far is: "Seems a little over the top"
