    That NIMBY article was way over the top. Did not seem to consider that the tighter land use regulations are perhaps what made CA/NY the rich places. Perhaps the other places could pull themselves up if they had tighter regulations for land use which would lessen the inequality in the long run nation wide.

    The aid for women article (wash Post) had very thoughtful comments–so read them too.
