Re: “Modern Day Horror

There is a lot of perfectly good public housing in this country. No one knows it is public housing, so no-one complains about it.

Then there is some urban public housing that is purposely being run into the ground so that the valuable land it is on can be used to make money for some one. Is this true in Richmond? I am not enough in touch with Richmond to know, but it is certainly possible.

The bottom line is that public housing is meeting a need -- and that almost every time some great-sounding idea comes along about what to do with, current residents lose out. I would not trust any scheme to replace public housing that did not provide -- in advance -- housing for all those residents at risk.
