What a ridiculous pieceSFH is the holy grail of housing. Get sum.
“little boxes made of ticky-tacky”
Why not go all the way with Soviet style apartments
That was the intent of Malvena Reynolds, a supporter of the USSR along with her friend Pete Seeger, in her 1961 song "Little Boxes", to ridicule the suburbs filled with identical houses built to accommodate GI's returning from war after defeating the tyranny of Nazism.
Why didn't she sing a song about ugly Soviet Bloc housing where people lived in barely heated areas with two or three families and a communal toilet down the hall and where Big Brother could listen in all the time. Where the women stood in line for hours in hopes of getting a crust of stale bread.
