    The developers carry such powerful weight in cities that are strapped for cash due to dwindling resources after industry left.  They bitch about the labor unions, seek ways around them and further impoverish the city's wage base.

    And it's just fucking scary that the financial industry ends up being a major player in city life--those fuckers aren't there to stay--they just want to make a buck, buy a property, flip it, use it as an "investment", use it as collateral--anything but live there and be part of a community.
