So the news comes that the bailout package has failed to pass the House with 133 Republicans and 95 Democrats voting nay.  Well, at least it was a pretty bipartisan fail.  I'm sure we will be treated to much sound and fury from the talking heads and the chattering class as to why, who's to blame,

In the comments of this post, the Blogfather of La Blogstra Nostra (loosely translated as "this blog-thing of ours") Joe Ferrara succintly makes a great point: realtors should blog about 'solds'.  This is a fantastic idea that I frankly do not see enough of on the RE.net. And writing a case study
