mid week crisis

There is never crisis, nor panic, nor hysteria at towers of ilium. We strive for calm, rational, and skeptical discourse here.

-The Ebola epidemic is mostly a public sanitation problem. The U.S. is safe, and the least we can do is spend money to find a cure and a vaccine. Some politicians, in particular, Chris Christie, are demonstrating a sickening ignorance. He should be quarantined to prevent the spread of his stupidity.

-Home prices fell in Massachusetts. I take this as a sign of constrained inventory. The good stuff has sold and there isn't much movement on both sides at the moment.

- They're hanging drywall somewhere in my building. I don't expect anyone to invent an alternative to gypsum wallboard anytime soon. I just had a sudden flashback to demolishing plaster and lath. Ugh.
