Re: “Raising the Rent at 138 Monte Cresta

So the tenants complain about the previous landlord's lack of maintenance, but they liked their low rents. Now they complain about the maintenance and rehabbing of the building and their rent increases (which are still crazy low rents!!). Sorry but I can't sympathize much with the tenants in this case. Cox coulda been more inclusive and worked with the tenants, I'll give them that. Ultimately this is the reason it's so freakin' hard to find good apartments around here. You have to make it economically feasible to maintain and create places for people to live. Most apartments seem to be falling apart since there's no incentive to keep things up. Most areas of the country understand this, why is it so hard out here?

Re: “Yuppie Go Home

Oh man, yeah, how can you not miss those days when the crackheads would get stabbed on the corner! Those were the mother f'n DAYS! How can people not miss that sh*t. What's with all this people "eatin' good food", "tryin' to be constructive members of society", "being creative" and "cleanin' the street up" BS! It ain't life and it ain't real if someone's not bleeding to death on the street. What's f'n wrong with society. Damn.
