Hillary Clinton: “Don’t let anyone tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs; that has been tried, and it’s failed spectacularly.” You know, Yale Law grads keep speaking like this and I’m going to start questioning whether the school actually teaches its students anything .
They just confiscated a dozen pairs of Kansas City Royals underpants, for instance. “We may have missed the last underwear bomber,” HSA spokesman Adam Yahiye Gadahn told FWIW, “but not the next one. We’re the bomb, so to speak.”
Back in town, and I missed nothing, it seems. There were six new pending deals reported this week, compared to 9 the same week last year and 11 the year before that (2012). This is always a slow time of year for real estate sales, but this year is exceptionally slow.
We also saw 7 “contingent contracts” reported, which I can’t compare with previous years because of GML’s record keeping, but of those 7, 2 were for more than $2 million, one was for a house asking $1.185, and the remaining four were under $1 million.
27 Cobb Island Drive (Exit 4, I-95), is back with a new broker, Shore & Country, and priced at $3.295 million, dauntingly close to the $3 million its owner paid for it in 2001. It started off in 2013 at $4.199, with the result you see today.

“Great-Great-Grandmothers vote too,” Steinem insisted to FWIW, “and we’ll be organizing a wheelchair brigade to get them to the polls. Victory will be ours!” Asked if any woman under 65 would have ever heard of, let alone remember her, Steinem lashed out at our FWIW reporter with her walker and screamed, “get the hell out of here, you whippersnapping ageist!”
