Dissing Decatur

New, 5 comments

Decatur and Oakhurst are featured extensively today at national blog Tikkun Daily, a function of the peace-promoting magazine of the same name. The author praises the area, which he called home for less than a year, as "a revitalization success story," and then rips the very forces that propelled the gentrification: "My wife and I fled Decatur after only 11 months. We joined others who decided to leave the city because of its unsustainable land use policies and the undercurrent of privilege that permeates Oakhurst." Is someone going overboard here?
