The end of the housing boom might not be a bad thing.

Property rights -v- human rights – Rick Sincere takes a letter-to-the-editor writer to task

Tim Kaine on the upcoming Transportation Session – aside from the interesting interview with Governor Kaine – this is an example of the power of the blogosphere (we really need to work on a new name for this) – a conference call with bloggers!?

Free books!

Option ARMs are the single most frightening loan product I have ever seen.  Depending solely on a property’s appreciation combined with a lack of a commensurate rise in pay … Who is going to be left holding the bag on these things? Because clearly it’s not the consumer’s fault …

Clustering is mandatory? Thanks to Channel 29 for the heads-up (and you mis-typed the code reference on your site. It’s § 15.2-2286.1).

A mini-milestone: just over 15,000 visits and 100k hits to this blog last month – made less significant because tabbed browsing has made this stats somewhat irrelevant/obsolete.

    OK, I’m inthe dark about this clustering is mandatory thing. I read the act and I have no idea what it means. Can somebody explain? Has this thing been enacted?

    I am still working on the clustering law. As far as I know, it has been passed and enacted, but I do not yet know its impact. As soon as I learn more, I will post it here.

    Marvelous. The legislature enacts a law and even the proffessionals don’t understand it.
