    This article is basically about how the upper class take to the novelty of the poor and their customs. But Step 1 started me on a train of thought to figure out a way to help the poor people in neighboorhoods that get abandoned. Well I just thought I'd share and welcome any constructive criticism.

    Also I this brings me back to the meme that "Society must continue at all costs" Which I do not buy into.

    I like the idea.

    It's a good idea.

    It'll therefore not happen.

    People are doing that! Farming in, and near, cities, that is. (that was what you were talking about, right? after the gangsta Elmo thing?)

    And there's this guy who is going around renegade farming on abandoned lots. I'll have to find the link, forgot where.

    In fact, there is a whole big raise-your-own-chickens-in-the-city movement. The roosters get annoying (and probably eaten), however. It's gotten to the point where some cities are actually starting to legislate how many roosters you can have on your urban farm before someone either shoots you, or the rooster.

    I happen to think your comment on that entry was pretty right on, too.
    The powers that be would never let this occur because this way of living would appeal to many other groups. When collective living become mainstream, the powers that be lose their power: THEN the gov't defers to the people..
    Instead of people deferring to the gov't (which is pretty much what we have, now.)

    (Btw, good to know you're reading that book!)

    I've heard of abandoned lots being used as gardens and for other purposes (I've seen some of it). It is good.

    None of the property develops really want that though. What they want is to be the next gentrification hot spot.

    It is a good idea. All it takes is enough people to say 'lets make it happen' instead of 'it'll never happen'.

    Also, on a side note, those tickle hands are a little creepy
