So, I hear there is a big housing crisis and economic turmoil and what not. And I know it is true. But it is kind of hard to believe when you are cycling in Great Falls, Maryland — just outside DC — and you see new mansions being built everywhere. The piece de resistance: a sign that advertises a new development where three of the homes are “starting in the upper $1ms.”

STARTING in the upper one-millions?! I don’t even know what an “upper one million” is.  I think it is probably approximately $1.4 million *more* than any house should cost.

Oh, sigh.
