Blowing up the blogosphere (in certain nerd circles) is DC local and Slate columnist Matt Yglesias new book The Rent Is Too Damn High. Addressing how the Right and the Left distort the cities' housing markets through land regulations, zoning, and other measures, Yglesias writes the best way to make healthy cities is to reform current housing and building policies. His book offers a short, concise perspective on urban planning full of DC-centric anecdotes. [Slate]
