threepunchstuff was kind enough to link me to a Salon.com article on the subprime mortgage mess, which quotes my old blog at length. Neato.

Your blog-comment on the Salon story has a typo in your URL— FYI.
Speaking of OC, did you ever get around to reading Lisa McGirr’s Suburban Warriors? I feel like I recommended it to you a while back.
You did and I lost the link somehow and now I have it again. Thank you a SECOND time!
Wow. I read that book for my American Govt seminar in grad school, long long time ago. I thought it was great for people who are particularly interested in OC, as I am. There was another book we read in there called Democracy in Suburbia which was a little more behavioral than historical, heavy on stats, but really a fascinating and more generalizable theory of what stuccoland does to you.
I grew up in Cobb County, Georgia, which is something like Orange County East; McGirr name-drops it as a parallel place to OC in her first 20 pages or so. It’s got all the same contributing factors: defense contracting, white flight, lots of evangelicals, lots of sprawl. There’s a reason I got out.
Congratulations on the mini-fame!! It’s about time you received some recognition!
Not only are you famous, you’re prophetic! Or at least prescient. Certainly smart.
wow, that was a fantastic pull-quote.
