    That is exactly the case here in St. Paul, too. St. Paul is very neighborhood-centric -- more so than Minneapolis and much more so than the suburbs. I know every neighbor in a three-house radius of...

    Single-payer health coverage is the way to go. But America loves way too much our 30-year experiment with social Darwinism -- and I'm afraid American Exceptionalism would not be able to take the...

    This would be my advice. Real estate is not a very liquid investment; even less so after The Great Recession. Might make sense to not tie up so much money in one asset -- wait and see how it goes,...
