San Fernando Valley diversity and traffic delays, as if you didn't already know

Here's a Burbank Leader article with the title, "Valley residents more diverse, wealthy, delayed."  It contains facts from the U.S. Census Bureau re the demographics of our fair land.  I love that it refers to the SFV as "the nation's largest geographic non-municipal entity."  Other factoids: the SFV has 1.74 million residents (good God, is that all?), we experience longer traffic delays than other local areas (no!), more than half of SFV residents spend 35% or more of their incomes on housing, and Glendale has over 10% unemployment.  But the SFV still has no high-end, gourmet taco trucks.  When will we be worthy?
