Anacostia Controversial Once More

A local blogger over at Anacostia Now was interviewed by NPR for a story on the changing racial demographics of the neighborhood. The G-word (rhymes with jentrification) was the theme of the day. As in, are Anacostia's lifelong residents being pushed out by newcomers ready to get their fixer-upper fix and then hike up neighborhood prices when they move up (and out) in a few years time? The blogger at Anacostia Now wrote a follow-up post and another Anacostia-phile had something to say about it too.
