If you eliminate the shells, shitholes, shacks, and shanties (aren't I clever) that are barely liveable or in crime-ridden areas, the "affordability while maintaining liquidity" metrics aren't that favorable to Washington.

On Reinventing Southwest:
I would have liked to see more fact checking in the sections about historical Southwest. I would also have liked to have seen some comment from the 16,000 people who already live in southwest and have moved there because they feel it is a successful community. I also would like to see more example of actual examples of Mr.Hoffman’s projects.

The article made no mention was made of his other partner, Elinor Bacon, who wrote all the requirements for the Anacostia Waterfront Corporation’s request for interest. Didn’t that give his bid an unfair advantage?
