82. I'd totally live in a mixed-income neighborhood
I like a mix of people around me. What I don't like is class bigotry and anti-poor NIMBYism.

The best way to ignore a problem is to keep it boxed up in its own neighborhood, which is what we've done with our poverty. And it makes it easier for the "poverty industry" such as pawn shops and payday usury loaners to exploit the unfortunate and desperate.
