Your ‘flap’ is a ‘flop’

“LOP vet flap draws heated reactions.” What a wonderful headline!

I’m sure you all are proud of yourselves for taking sides in the way that your initial article was written and the fact that you have taken a simple case of a homeowners association attempting to enforce its CC&Rs, i.e. rules, and turned it into a “flap.”

Anything to stir up emotions, whether valid or not — it sells newspapers.
