Hang’em High!

GHS graduate and criminal defense attorney Mickey Sherman has been deemed unfit to address school children because, gasp, he dares to defend under-aged drinkers. I understand the desire to bring children directly from the back of the police car to the execution ground; lots of people feel this way, especially when it’s not their own children involved or when it’s a Taliban meting out justice. And certainly anyone is entitled to be ignorant of our Constitution and history. But that doesn’t mean that educators ought necessarily to agree with such sentiments nor display such a lack of basic knowledge of who this country was founded by (lawyers) and why they felt it important to protect the rights of the accused. The worst part of this sad tale is that my daughter is graduating this spring and I will now have to sit through yet another rendition of “Strive Ever Onward” instead of being entertained by the very funny Mr. Sherman.

As of noon today exactly one new listing (a rental) has been posted on the Greenwich MLS and eight price reductions. That’s a slow market.

New Listings of note:
22 Crescent Road in Riverside is a 1936, updated house built in the mission style, sort of (at least, it has a lot of light oak trim and such). Very nice house, but it backs up to Exit 5 of I-95′s. That never helps a home’s value but 5 bedrooms, huge back yard, great street. At $1.8ish, I think it offers a lot.

15 Stillman Lane, in Glenville is still under construction but I toured it yesterday with Matt Matthews, who has probably built more fine houses in town than anyone else. Matt thought that it was “the best new house I’ve seen in a long time” and spent a lot of time pointing out the many (expensive) details the builder (Gardner)included. Which is good enough for me. $5,525,000 and worth it.
