    Wowsa. That gentrification article had some fairly silly statements.

    Like that poor residents in DC can't get to jobs in DC.

    Really? DC has one of the best metro and bus systems in the world. And last time I checked you can actually bike from one of the District to the other in relatively little time.

    And he also says that the new high skill jobs in DC somehow crowded out the lower skill jobs?


    We had a HUGE construction boom. And a HUGE retail and restaurant boom. All of these industries need a lot of low skill labor.

    Idiocy like that sortof destroys an authors credibility.
