    Southie isn't depopulated like Youngstown, it just has smaller families now and less crowding. It was never huge to begin with. Even when Southie was much more populous, I doubt it was hiding 100,000 to 200,000 people who went to the suburbs. I can believe it had 50,000 people in mid-century, but not far more than that.

    When I misestimated the population by a factor of five, that also means I misestimated the size of the diaspora by a comparable number. I'm sorry I didn't spell that out.
