Atlanta Housing Authority rebuts CL post

Atlanta Housing Authority's blog features a post taking issue with an August 13 Fresh Loaf post I wrote about Congressional testimony from three Georgia State University sociology professors noting the death of several elderly public housing residents relocated from senior high-rises. AHA says there's no evidence linking the deaths to the moves.

Creative Loafing's report, "Public Housing Demolition and Premature Death," concluded: "It appears the stress and unhappiness associated with unwanted moves may be shortening the lives of local seniors who rely on public assistance for a place to live." Sorry, Creative Loafing, but it just isn't true — the phrase "it appears" in this case means "we're guessing."

Read it all.

Thank you Catherine Smith for the heads up via Twitter.
