George Lucas, "Pray I don't alter it any further."

Briefly saw this story, but didn't know if it was true, but Ragnell (at @Ragnell on twitter) reTumblred it.

George Lucas (of Radioland Murders fame) has been trying to build a massive studio complex on his massive tract of land in Marin County. But his neighbors, the Richie McRichersons, aren't having it. And they have stymied efforts to build up the site, bringing a lot of money to the company...and those pesky working class people. They finally won against Lucas, and the studio won't be built.

Instead Lucas has decided to do something else with the land, instead of trying to have it re-purposed as industrial, he wants to now use it for residential ends. So he is looking to have it made into low income housing, or housing for seniors on fixed income. Lovely. It is one part a middle finger at the prigs in the neighborhood, and a flaming good deed. The force is strong in this one.
