SAN FRANCISCO: Now With Fewer Kids

NOM president Brian Brown is gleefully tweeting out the link to a story about the declining number of children living in San Francisco. Because them there evil homofascists are chasing all the families away. It certainly can't be because San Francisco is one of the most expensive cities in the nation, can it?
Families that remain in The City are bucking the trend that has plagued San Francisco for years as the number of children — defined as people up to 17 years old — has dropped from 181,532 in 1960 to 107,524 today, according to the latest U.S. Census Bureau figures. The 2000 census counted 112,802 youths. The decrease is disappointing news for city officials, who have attempted to counter the family-flight trend by creating more affordable housing, improving schools and cutting costs, such as a college savings account for kindergarten enrollees.
