But hey–Bob Siegel the other night on All Things Considered misinformed his audience by claiming that Barack Obama won the 2008 New Hampshire Primary! So everything is subject to rewrite–why shouldn’t you take 10 years off your age?

Not 28 years, 38 years. Otherwise, I’ve just gotten a decade added to my life – woo hoo! Going to go read TR now. Thanks H-Ann!

I’ll pick the low-hanging fruit from TR’s cornucopia, # 10, Nassau County, since I went to pre- and K-6 there when it was mostly Levittown writ large, plus a few left-over potato farms. The house that my parents sold for about $19,000 (o.k., so it was a long time ago) was flipped in 2006 for $617,000, a multiple of 32. Meanwhile, the one they bought a month later in the exurbs in Pennsylvania for $17,000, I sold in the same year (2006) for $315,000, a multiple of 18). With that kind of class-squeezing (class warfare?) going on, it’s small wonder those folks fight like cats and dogs over the choicest lamb chop on the college platter.

I wonder if those who stayed behind got that rich, or got squeezed out by the incoming 1%? We left there voluntarily and gratefully for more room, more cosmopolitan culture, cleaner air, safer streets, and I have to say, worse schools, and so more realistic, or at least finite, notions about other kinds of mobility. The test-fixer *and* the DA probably live where we did, on the “Middle” Shore, and couldn’t afford to drive through those tonier Gold Coast suburbs, much less live there.

It’s amazing how well they were able to match up the words and gestures.

And yes, TR’s list is also well worth a read.
