Re: “Broken Glass Houses

If Glass had limited his ambitions the way Rancho Cordova did--leaks, smoke detectors, sanitation, broken windows--he would have had 1/100th the opposition. But instead he proposed a limitless approach where investigators could cite and demand repair for anything--a staircase with risers an inch higher than current code; a sloping floor; a couple of missing roof tiles; dry rot in window frames. These are not the stuff of substandard housing. They are part of living in a city with an unusually old housing stock. Not once did Glass acknowledge that. Despite numerous opportunities to do so, not once did he propose limiting the scope of the inspections. If he had, I would have signed on in a minute instead of still fuming about the rank stupidity of the proposal and my certainty that he will try to bring it back again. Right now he's only one vote away from pulling it off. It won't be long until he gets away with it. By the way, your numbers on the Wharfinger showdown are not even close. There were far more than 100 people there.
