  1. That is interesting. It seems the more things change the more they stay the same. As a side note, our Twin Cities real estate market continues to slide in value. The belief is that the Minneapolis St Paul real estate market will improve in about two years after a deeper bottom, followed by a period of stabilization.

  3. Thomas,

    Why do you post such meaningless drivel?

    Do you have even the slightest idea what this gibberish is about?

    It is the mark of a wise and logical person that he admits doubt on scientific and technological questions. It is paradoxical that the concrete practical thinker best understands this while it is the most educated abtract thinkers who have the most difficulty accepting the uncertainty of their pet theories.
