Seriously, does anyone think buying real estate – commercial/industrial especially in the Puget Sound area is a bad idea? Please let me know why. I just don’t see it.

This whole mess with the financial institutions vaporizing and the trickle-down affect it will have, reminds me of a scene from Dr. Zhivago when Geraldine Chaplin’s character thought of her life of affluence and now how a dozen families were living in their former home she said: “It is much more fair”.
Get ready for a lot of “fair”.
