    Regarding: “Urban” Land Institute Head: Demand Will Grow for Suburban Housing (WSJ):

    That’s not exactly what he is saying.  He is talking about inner ring suburbs.  Which highlights an identity crisis LA county will have to deal with.  Is West LA suburban?  What about the San Gabriel Valley, or Paramount?  These places are hardly Orange County, nor are they Hollywood, or downtown.
