"Spano's Suicide: Housing Plan Doomed County Exec"

The New York Post has now picked up a slightly shortened version of my City Journal piece on the housing lawsuit that contributed to a voter revolt in Westchester.

P.S. The Weekly Standard "Scrapbook" feature discusses the piece, as do John Derbyshire and Ron Coleman. And reader Paul Rath writes: "We face the same issue at the other end of the state, near Buffalo. Unfortunately, we have the same race-baiting and over-simplified arguments in our press here as well." For more on how towns expose themselves to litigation if they attempt to earmark sub-market-rate housing for local residents or workers, see this Oct. 23 New York Times report on Connecticut.
