George Lucas Does Something Likeable For a Change: Revenge on Rich Neighbors

George Lucas’ rich neighbors don’t want him building a movie studio in their backyard. His response is the best thing he’s done in years.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, for four decades Lucas has owned a large swath of land in Marin County in the North San Francisco Bay and has spent the past few years trying to transform the ranch on it into a massive, nearly 300,000 square foot, state-of-the-art movie studio complete with day care center, restaurant, gym and a 200-car garage. His neighbors, however, have rejected it every step of the way. Despite the promise of bringing $300 million worth of economic activity to the area, the already-well off neighbors are worried about years’ worth of construction activity and the additional foot traffic it will bring into their neighborhood once completed. . . .

So what is George Lucas going to do with his property now that he’s tired of his rich neighbors putting up a not-in-my-backyard stink? He wants to transform the property into low-income housing, naturally, ending their official statement with this zinger, “If everyone feels that housing is less impactful on the land, then we are hoping that people who need it the most will benefit.”

    The Liberal/Democrat media is showing off how stupid their readers aka followers are. LOL The article continually mentions "rich" neighbors but, fails to mention that George Lucas is a wealthy man himself.

      This gentleman misses the point of this post entirely. Of course he's a wealthy man, they're talking about him building a massive movie studio. What they're referring to is that these rich neighbors will probably hate the low cost housing even more, as it means "middle class" people will be able to move into the area. It's funny.

      I have never read anything from this website before as I prefer my news from more "official" outlets, but I read this because it sounded particularly good, and it didn't disappoint. I'm disappointed you too cannot get the joke.
