Today's "luxury" condos are tomorrow's affordable condos. There's a process called filtering, by which even luxury unit supply will lower the costs of lesser condos. Only way it won't happen is if there is so much pent-up demand that too little supply doesn't make a dent.

07/27/2017 - 10:49am Great post, Brian. Housing

Great post, Brian. Housing affordability is the crisis of our time, caused by onerous zoning restrictions and years of under-building. Props to your bold stance on a sports blog.

 

Only quibble is the dismissal of Vision Zero. We are so far away from "advanced technologies" eliminating traffic deaths, given the likely slow adaption by all motorists. We need traffic engineering and enforcement solutions now to remedy all the lives that are needlessly lost on our roadways.

When Brian Cook was in culinary school they called him "Cook" because he could really cook.

Lead poisoning is an underrated crisis in so many communities, even separate from the latest Fkint emergency. Keep up the great work and thank you for all that you do.

Agreed. It's a chilling commentary on how little minimum wage buys you, how messed up metro Detroit's regional transportation is, how few good jobs there are in Detroit, etc. It's a miscrosm of so many sad problems that boggles my mind that someone would feel "picked up" by this article.

Can I trust that someone is constantly monitoring for Derrick Green being listed in the U of M directory?  Funny that Brian was just joking about this on WTKA this week.

12/18/2012 - 1:48pm I am friends with his brother

I am friends with his brother and was lucky enough to meet Teddy a few times.  It only took about 2 minutes with him to discover what a genuinely good person he was.  He fought his illness with such strength and bravery that it was an inspiration.  The Scott Family and the Michigan Community lost a great one and he will be missed.

I can't walk 2 city blocks in this town without seeing a Michigan shirt or a license plate with "Michigan Alumni" on it.  If half the people who came to B-Bill's for game watching showed up to the event it would be a massive success.

Sure, I'd be happy to.  Who should I contact?  Brian, Seth, Lloyd Brady?

They should come to D.C. in the future.  Huge alumni base who usually turns out for events like these.

October 12th.  Columbus Day.  Every year in college I got to walk around campus and see chalk on the ground indicating that we shouldn't celebrate my birthday as a holiday b/c Columbus = genocide.

When I was in school, I knew someone who was big in the College Dems, and he helped plan a speech from Michael Moore.  Prior to the event, Moore had my friend buy him a Michigan hat at Steve and Barry's or something.  I'm sure he just wanted to pander to the crowd.

Does anyone know if it will be espn3.com?  I actually have that somehow.

Every scene matters.  Everything is realistic.  It's incredibly well-written.  Very rich characters.  And there's some good comic relief.

Right, I would think they would announce it if it were.  If Rich Rod knew he had no chance of getting him in, I think he would do whatever he could to help DD find another school (unless that school is in Columbus).  He seemed supportive of Witty when this was happening to him.

I was also class of 2006, Markley 4th Reeves freshman year.  The worse part about it was that on the weekends, at least 2 or 3 of the 4 stalls would be unusable due to vomit.
