Housing Bubble, credit bubble, public planning, land use, zoning and transportation in the exurban environment. Specific criticism of smart growth, neotradtional, forms based, new urbanism and other top down planner schemes to increase urban extent and density. Ventura County, California specific examples.
A bit out of mainstream topics. My youngest has taken it upon herself to learn "cocktails." This greeted us yesterday:
A Lime sherbet, tequila, triple sec drink for two. It was very good.
Think out of the box. Who gets the nod? The kid who golfs and pours an awesome drink or the equally technical competent candidate?
Is it "fair?" That's the issue.
Since I have rejected the ad model for reasons of visitor privacy and equitable compensation I run the blog on the kindness of others. It never took much but i had to justify the effort beyond mere hobby. Besides, there were better places to have RE/Econ discussions. No longer. Hoocoodanode is closing. Others require deep registration.
I intend to continue my three principles.
• Light hand on comments
• Never betray a confidence
Not everyone's cup of tea. Tens of thousands of comments and I think I deleted 2-4. 1.4 million visits and 1-2 posters banned.
There may be a few teething pains. Let me know.
