More in the SF gentrification drama. Regardless of the economics here, I think one thing is clear: Google’s busing choices are the most public of its many displays of an utter lack of corporate citizenship.

The same can be broadly applied to most Google employees, who like many technically educated young people tend to be blissfully ignorant of the broader systems around them upon which they are placing considerable strain.
