I attended the recent gentrification meeting at the SkyDragon held in response to O'Rourke's article. I went just to try and get a grasp on the issue. However most people went there fully intent to either create a confrontation or to bang on about their particular niche issue in the larger debate. Business owners who did attend were basically shunned by the radical element in the room as opposed to being engaged in discussions. Despite the best efforts of the organizers to maintain order, by the end of the meeting during the large group "wrapup", the confrontations began and I made my way to the exit. Very little in the way of factual discussion, I was disappointed.
