Mission Valley development machine cranks up

The water comes from our successful conservation programs, re-use (http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/2014/n...) and housing like these Mission Valley projects, which use less water per capita than single family homes. Established residents want to block badly-needed housing for their own children, so they can keep their lush green lawns in our semi-arid climate? I know baby boomers are the most selfish generation in history, but that takes the cake.

House poor, data rich

How are rising home prices good for those who can't afford a home? San Diego is the least affordable housing market in the country. Yet there's one comment here while Don's anti-development piece (http://www.sandiegoreader.com/news/2015/apr/02/...) has dozens, mostly railing against any badly-needed housing. How does preventing new development near transit make San Diego more affordable? Many of the Reader's commenters oppose providing housing for younger residents (many of whom are already here, consuming water in their parents homes) and disregard its impact on our city's economy and jobs. Who will companies employ when our skilled talent leaves because they can't afford it here?
