there's a story on this american life this week that sort of reminded me of what valeska said about calling neighborhoods "bad" a couple of weeks ago.
"A retired millionaire tries to understand the reality of a tough, seedy, inner city neighborhood. But what if the neighborhood is none of those things? Ira Glass evaluates the claims of this millionaire, Steve Poizner, who is also running for governor of California."
here is the link.
(my mother went to this high school. she grew up in this neighborhood.)
