The article made it pretty clear, to me at least, that Talia James isn't deserving of a lot of sympathy. However, the details of her case are symptomatic of real problems in San Francisco and Silicon Valley because of the recent boom and its attendant increase in income inequality.

To focus on one person is to fall into a trap that it's a unique situation. I might have little sympathy for the person named but, as detailed above, I do think that there is a problem.
