One of the things I always enjoy in watching the antics of the rich and famous is reading the listings in the real estate section of our local paper. On any Sunday, you will see listings for properties in the $25 million range, but also photos of especially grand properties with the caption "price upon request," which I read to be the equivalent of "if you have to ask you can't afford it." But there are plenty of folks in town who have seen the values of their properties escalate far beyond what they could afford, and they came out in spades complaining that they couldn't afford an added tax for undergrounding utilities. So, in addition to the old wealth and the entertainment wealth in town, there are those of us of moderate means whose timing was fortuitous.

Seeing your moniker makes me think I should have changed mine to dbFool. Throughout my career, I was always known as db, but db is never available so I added phd. But that seemed a bit pretentious, so I changed it to iamdb. By the way, how's the rock rolling going?
