George Lucas sticks it to rich neighbors

    So what is George Lucas going to do with his property now that he's tired of his rich neighbors putting up a not-in-my-backyard stink? He wants to transform the property into low-income housing, naturally, ending their official statement with this zinger, "If everyone feels that housing is less impactful on the land, then we are hoping that people who need it the most will benefit."

    He's working with the Marin Community Foundation to instead construct affordable housing for either low-income families or seniors living on small, fixed incomes. In order to smooth along the development, he's already given them all of the pricey technical studies and land surveys Lucasfilm spent years conducting. And we think that's just great. Because if there's one thing rich people will hate more than having movie magic made in their backyard, it's poor people moving in.

    Is he going to CGI the poor people into the neighborhood later?

    Naw, it's cheaper to bus 'em in from Trenton.

    Open pawn shops and liquor stores I will.

    Even though some may benefit something seems wrong with Lucas using "poor people" to make his point.

    Not a fan of the plan.

    I love it, the poor need more housing (not really many poor though in Marin County.)

    If word of this gets out, it could generate sympathy for the rebellion in the Senate.

    I think putting up a MMA training facility would do the trick as well. Isn't his daughter a fighter?
