    Tell these wealthy, young techies to move back to San Jose where they rightfully belong and stop pushing up housing costs in San Francisco. There problem solved.


    Soon they might be homeless too.

    So much for being the independent type, I only had a room mate once in my life, it was ok, we got along but frat house? The Real World, Big Brother, Golden Girls, Skid Row Tent City or Burning Man, in real life? Living in an apartment condo complex with my own entrance door with neighbors on the other side of the wall is bad enough but if many strangers are being forced into sharing the same space I would not be comfortable with, maybe temporary but not a way of life.
