Worried for a city’s soul?!

There’s a bit in today’s Post about Silver Spring including a bizarro headline that reads: “Worries for Silver Spring’s Soul”

Right. The Soul. Of a Burbclave.

People are complaining that Silver Spring is becoming hip, what with the new AFI Silver theatre, and the restaurants and a burgeoning commercial community, that the city itself has “too many rich people and too many chain stores”.


Crocodile tears, I’m sure, as tax revenues rise and reinvestment in the larger community becomes possible, thanks to the public-private partnership that’s evolved in Montgomery County. Sure, we want your money, but we don’t want you to stick around. Great. It’s like I never left Davis!

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
