Of course not. Where in my comment did I mention LA?

On the other hand, I've seen you claim in more than one thread that SF's economy is immune to outside forces whenever the question of the market is brought up. We may get to test that theory sooner than later.

Haha since when are you an advocate for long distance commuters in the Bay Area? LOL

We have the world highest proportion of long distance commuters in the country already so its not a surprise.

You seem to think that we all live in unexpandable areas that cannot grow. That might be the case for Philly but the Bay Area is poised to continue adding counties for quite a long time.

Muhahahaha

lol

Singling out the Bay Area implies that LA is in a different boat and therefore not subject to the adverse affects of a stock market decline, and that's preposterous and juvenile.

In fact, this is another way the Bay Area steamrolls over LA in global relevance. The world invests trillions in Bay Area companies, btwn 4 and 6 trillion. Thats not our money, thats YOURS in the form of investments and 401Ks.

The market sinking affects Bay Area stocks but you have a major interest in our success, no?

Meanwhile, nobody but groupees really truly cares or is affected by anything that happens in Hollywood. Its value is much more superficial.

What's wrong with people on CD? Wanting cities to get hurt just because you disagree with a poster?

Are you sh*tting me? Are you all that mentally weak?

Yes, yes he did. Lol, Montclair wants the Bay to be number one in everything, even when they're clearly terrible lists.

Long commutes are a terrible metric, no matter how you try to spin it. And clearly the Bay has a housing problem if it has to rely on far flung counties for growth.
