He didn’t really say that, did he? Actually, he did:

The Bay Area is sick and tired of the antics of entitled techies, and the nouveaux riches want a place where they’ll be appreciated. It’s time for federal authorities to step in and move the show someplace else. Cleveland, say.

Hopefully, this is a joke. Then again, Yglesias already proposed moving MIT to Detroit, so maybe this is just one of his hobby horses.

The Greenhouse Tavern is delicious, LeBron might be coming back to the Cavaliers, and there’s even a casino conveniently located right downtown. Throw in a few technology giants, and it could be the next great American city. Get excited, Googlers—you’re gonna love it.
