        Salinas with the third least affordable housing??
        \_ Wow, Yuba City made the list!  I guess Chico has a slightly
           higher median income?
           \_ Chico has seen a huge increase in home prices lately.  I've seen
              houses comparable to mine going for more than 2x what I paid 4.5
              years ago.  Meanwhile salaries really haven't changed much.
        \_ I find this hard to believe. San Jose, San Mateo, Mountain
           view are not listed, yet Oakland made it to the top? And
           Merced/Modesto made the top list, even though ppl there are
           unually poor farmers who could barely make a living there?
           \_ Umm... re-read the explanation at the top of the page.  It's
              based on median income vs home cost, not flat home cost.
           \_ Damn, NYC beat Modesto by just one ranking... bastards...

        \_ People have been using the term "millionaire" as a synonym for
           "rich" for a very long time.  But there's this little thing called
           inflation.  Having a million dollars in 1900 is roughly equivalent
