Jack Halprin: As a Google Attorney, I Need the Homes of 7 Teachers, and Here's Why | SF Weekly

"What I’m trying to say is that, in a free society, some people make better choices than others, and we reward those people with the homes of their vanquished enemies.

Naturally, we pay them very little money — so little that they’re practically homeless already. Frankly, I’m surprised that anyone even notices when I evict someone making under $150,000 a year. Honestly, how can you tell?"
