Michael,

Here's a link to a op/ed piece that covers some similar ground.

It appeared in the Dallas paper a few weeks ago with the title: The Demise of the Middle Class Neighborhood

Since the Dallas paper has it behind a paywall this link is to the New Haven paper which gives it a different title:

She really got hammered in the comments in both the Dallas and New Haven papers.

Fascinating link, ceemac. I've been reflecting on Bishop's book "The Big Sort" where he makes the case that we have been sorting ourselves into like-minded communities, effectively creating echo chambers. I do wonder if the concern stirred up about inequality isn't more a function of the social distance emerging between groups than about the actual differences in inequality itself.
