SKID ROAD: HOW CALIFORNIA’S ARMY OF HOMELESS HAS TURNED THE STATE’S RICHEST BOULEVARDS INTO RV PARKS AS EXORBITANT RENTS FORCE FAMILIES AND FULL-TIME WORKERS TO LIVE ON FOUR WHEELS:

● California has seen a proliferation in RV and vehicle living in some of the state’s most expensive areas and cities, such as Palo Alto, in recent years

● The rise of mobile homes lining streets has been fueled by excessive rents and house prices, though numbers are hard to pin down.

Some numbers are easier to pin down than others: The median sales price of a home in Palo Alto? $2,400,000.

As Victor Davis Hanson wrote in 2016, “In a word, [California] is now a medieval place of lords and peasants—and few in between.”

Complete with the return of medieval diseases, to boot.
