I remember a time when housing could be segregated by "singles only." This way, single people could pursue their swinging no-kids lifestyles with pool parties and unmolested flower beds. Thanks to the nanny state, all apartment complexes had to include two bedrooms units for "families." Now we have a lot of miserable people: families who can't let their kids have sandboxes, single people who are sick of their cars being vandalized, and the mentally ill who pose a risk to children. Bring back the singles only apartment complexes, and let families who don't mind screaming kids live with each other.
