Open Forum (9/8– )

By Dave Fratello | September 8th, 2009
We're going to have to call that a Summer, then.

No more concerts in the park, fewer and fewer beach days (for average folks), more homework.

MBC ran a little poll last year around this time to capture readers' Summer activities. A similar poll is posted now – let us know what you did in town. We'll run the poll all week, till Sunday night at 8pm.

Dialing back, last year produced a September to remember, in a rather awful sense. Markets collapsing, weekly bailouts and nationalizations, the scramble for solutions. Here's hoping for a brighter Fall.


In real estate news, Blake Roberts already wrote essentially the story MBC might have about the recent closed sale at 881 10th$2.150m for a home purchased for $2.8m just 3 years earlier, a 23% drop in that span.

Blake observes that the home was "dumped." Yep. Check out Blake's post here.
