(1044) The G-word

Oh dear, we admit we’ve dodged directly addressing gentrification at suburban-poverty.com for a couple of reasons.  Firstly, it’s more  often attached to the core of a given city than its suburbs.  Also, the g-word seems to shut conversation down because of its controversial dimension.  These two items might help us unpack things, at least a bit.
