Cool site flex. Love the links to other blogs too. I’ve been looking for something like this for a long time.

I’ve been hearing doomsday senarios regarding housing bubbles and higher ed for a long time. Nothing’s happened so far and I’m doubting anything will happen. From what I’ve seen (S&L scandals,dotcom bust)bad things happen, politicians and people get really mad, laws that may or may not work get passed and the country just keeps truckin along.

I don’t know if housing will crash or if college will become unaffordable to all but a few people, but I have a feeling in any case, we’ll just keep truckin along.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the comments, Henry. No matter what happens, life will continue and the economy will deal, somehow.
