Apropos to that, borrowed from Fiend's SuperBear:
Nicholas Von Hoffman: Pop Goes the Real Estate Bubble
So there has been a 13% drop in Manhattan real estate prices in the last 3 months. Now is that the bubble bursting or just getting squished a little? After the last apartment gets sold at the highest price to the greatest fool, it's a long way down, buddy.
This evening, I went to the Burger King Hurricane Katrina fund-raiser in Ramsey. Ironically (or perhaps fittingly), it was raining. They had a big box in which they collected the receipts so they would tally up the dine-in sales for the evening. (Odd. I thought they would simply be able to get the total from the cash register.) I actually didn't finish everything, so I'll be having a Triple Whopper for breakfast tomorrow. Well, if I could have breakfast chicken last week, I certainly can have a breakfast burger now.
Have a great weekend, everyone.
