Tag Archives: I didn’t know this yesterday
Someone once quoted me a remarkably low number of book sales required to get on the NY Times Bestseller list. I have no way of knowing if it’s even close, so I won’t repeat it, but it’s mildly depressing.

At the real estate office down my block, there are 1 bedroom apartments listed for more than “an unnamed Canadian company” paid to buy an 80,000+ seat building that has housed an NFL and NBA team, the pope, a Super Bowl, and Wrestlemania III. This is the recession. This, my friends, is Detroit.
Update: Not legs. LOL.
