Combined and Uneven Developments



Two articles by me on the grim undeath of the Great Wen: on gentrification, via the dubious results of an 'urban renaissance'; and dereliction, via Paul Talling's Derelict London, both very much part of the same process.

Considering how much UK-sourced fiction and non-fiction I read, I'm really surprised I haven't heard "Great Wen" before. But now I have. And I am grateful. I think the term could apply to L.A., except barely anyone over here in the US knows what a wen is. Maybe we could exchange the word with "boil" or just "pustule." Not the same, alas.

The chairperson of the International Society of Pedants notes that "CGI Images" opens out into "computer generated image images". tsk tsk.

Apart from the above act of petty jealousy, I'm very glad that you're disseminating the message so successfully, monsieur.

He doesn't thank anyone, which is odd as i assume lots of the pics were from tip-offs. Disgraceful. Anyway, where's your book?
