Let's see...

Palo Alto taxpayers pay for all the infrastructural updates and repairs, live among ugly highrise buildings, deal with traffic congestion because the city keeps taking away a lane or two, at the same time, reduce public safety staffing and continue to gouge its taxpayers. All this, so that the city and some folks can say "Wow! What an entrepreneurial place we live in".

Pitiful.
