  1. That Shellwood story is insidious.
    I was trying to figure out how to raise property values in Cincinnati awhile ago because people aren’t going to put $100K into a house appraised at $100K.
    The same house in Pasadena, CA would go for $1M, however & dropping $100K would be fairly practical.
    So you wind up seeing the same houses in both places but the ones in Cincinnati are all run down…
    A grocery I go to has Cosmo in the magazine racks in the check out line but they use little boards to cover the covers. I like to liberate them.
