America is in trouble

Two links I figured I would share with the populace, neither directly tied to Youngstown.

The first represents the cruelest thing I can even imagine. Old ladies all over Youngstown are shuddering. Bake sale profits are being donated. Poles all over the world are in mourning. Yes, the unthinkable has happened, as the Vindicator headline reads, "Police seek man who robbed Pa. church pierogi sale". What is this world coming to? In the words of Florida governor Rob Ritchie, "Crime, boy... I don't know."

The second article, emphasizing the return of the housing market across America, the 'home' to millions of American's from 1987 to 1995 is on the market. For $4.1 million (lowered to $3.9 mil), you can buy the San Francisco townhouse featured on 'Full House'. Uncle Jesse not included.
