Blight, Property Owners & Politics

I've said it before and I'll say it again.

You may associate blighted, run down and derelict propterties with economically depressed, at risk, and racially isolated neighborhoods. But in truth, there is always some much more invested individual or organization that owns these properties and is not being held accountable for their state of disrepair.

Just wondering, have you ever seen Wes Craven's fantastic B-movie, The People Under the Stairs?

No reason.

No, I have not seen that, Mr. Non-Sequitur.

First of all, it was fantastic and you should watch it.

Second of all, the crux of the movie seemed to be the insane fantasy that everyone in the ghetto was poor because one super-creepy incestuous inbred white couple had all the money and kept albinos under their stairs.

True story.
