She makes excellent points, as always. Her analysis of the story is far more worthy a read than the original story itself. She quotes the story extensively, then she quotes her own book to make her point, I'll just quote the summation of her post
When big cities no longer have a monopoly on amenities and niche retailing, whether because of chains or the Internet, they have to worry about quality of life issues they've previously ignored. Los Angeles discourages new housing and road construction, while the rest of the Sunbelt generally encourages both. People will move. The weather is great in L.A., but Nashville and Dallas aren't Buffalo.
