I'm a landscape architect who stumbled onto your blog through Pruned - so far I've really enjoyed the material that you offer your students. Reading this article really reminded me of "The Next Slum?" article featured in the Atlantic, which discusses how the demographic shift caused by the subprime crisis may impact the cultural landscape of the suburbs.
