Looking out from inside an abandoned building

The picture above is at the Marin Headlands, which is a State Park, but it was created for the same reason that innumerable acres of land in other parts of Marin have been preserved by local land conservation institutions – not people whining. It’s all the same land and it could all disappear if we let it. It’s not about low income people, or crack heads, or snobs or tie dye shirts or assholes making lame jokes about hippies. It’s about something fragile and finite and which can’t be rebuilt or replaced.

Movie studios and section 8 apartments both have effects which stretch beyond George Lucas’s property lines. Go to West Marin and look the fuck around. All of that is slowly disappearing. The reason people didn’t want either structure built was that it would further accelerate that disappearance. Not mention, George Lucas already has two studios out there – as if he needs another, as if we’re all really enjoying his films these days.

More buildings means more people, which means more cars, which means more roads, which means more stores, which means even more people, which means more housing and eventually something that can’t ever be replaced is now just more suburbs.

Don’t knock on people for valuing a fragile resource that can never be replaced over housing and movie studios.
