    I first read something by Richard Florida about 10 years ago. I smelled something fishy in his predictions of a shiny new world. Something like those "prosperity preachers." And now I read his latest "thought" - that he was wrong.

    "Florida’s solutions: — more affordable housing, more investment in infrastructure, and higher pay for service jobs ..."

    We hear this dumber-than-sh*t mantra that he's lately borrowed daily - with NO way offered to make it happen. Goodbye, Richard. Don't bother congratulating me.

    Affordable housing is an oxymoron in 2017. Anyone who doesn't realize that is either a moron - or high on oxy.

    If it sounds too good to be true...

    What I don't like about this guy is that he took in more than some individuals who put their good sense aside. Urban planning is a lot more than that.

    But this guy comes across as being something worse than a huckster, a visionary.
