Silly me, I thought Habitat was a store for YUPPYs and LOMBARDs
But not in this case:
The store may be just as unwelcome. It's not the "wrong sort of people" folk object to - it's scrunching up together.
I've no sympathy for nimbys, if they want to keep it vacant, they can buy it themselves or make it a public reserve accessable to all.

Yep, the guy in the article is a huge prick for sure.
That said, I like the little wooded areas next to my house and I'd be distressed if they were built upon, too, so...
What's wrong with having poor people nearby? They make good house servants.

Sure, until they use their job to case the joint, then come in one night when you're on vacation and steal the computer, TV, DVD, and the silver.
Otherwise, having "the poor" nearby is a nice resource for pool maintenance, grounds maintenance, and maids.

don't forget babysitters. In an emergency (ie, cheap opera tix on CL), who wants their babysitter to live 15 miles away and have to take public bus?
This dude jsut ain't thinking of the benefits.
