1037 Broderick Street, San Francisco CA

The asking price on this 2-bedroom flat in San Francisco is $2,000 more than Canadian investors just paid for the 80,000-seat Silverdome in Detroit, the former home of the Lions and the Pistons. Built in 1975 for $55.7 million, it sold for just $583,000, including over 125 acres of surrounding property.

Great column from G.K.

Mr. Keillor cuts to the marrow of the issue:

“Any legislative body in which 41 senators from rural states that together represent 10 percent of the population can filibuster you to death is going to be flat-footed, on the verge of paralysis, no matter what. Anytime 10 percent of the people can stop 90 percent, it’s like driving a bus with a brake pedal for each passenger. That’s why Congress has a public approval rating of 25 percent.

Health care is much too complicated for Congress.”
