Silicon Valley Is Ruthless To Old People

Be honest, we all know people move to Palo Alto to be next to Mark Zuckerberg, not old people. Hell, even Mark Zuckerburg bought up all the houses around him so he wouldn't have to live next to undesirables.

Sometime in July 2012, Suzan Russaw and her husband, James, received a letter from their landlord asking them to vacate their $800-a-month one-bedroom apartment in Palo Alto, California. He gave them 60 days to leave. The "no-fault" eviction is a common way to clear out low-paying tenants without a legal hassle and bring in people willing to pay thousands more in rent.
