Ok - so maybe Toronto isn't the worst city for NIMBYism. Nope that distinction has to belong to the City of Evanston, Illinois host of the Northwestern University and other fancy happy types. That is until they smell the whiff of development in their backyard, and then they go all nuts! Like this proposed developmnent that got the locals all upset, because it might attract the wrong type of "transient academics". Click on the story, because the comments are actually quite funny!
There you have it - the transient academics are ruining it for us all. Thankfully, I am permamently hired, otherwise, I too might be the target of these attacks. I feel sad for all my University colleagues who have no permanent residence, and have to carry their books and crazy ideas everywhere they go. Yup, the world must end the tyranny of transient academics.
