Reflections, of “A Bronx Tale”

By Amo, published on Oct 21, 2007

...Avenue, in a tightly knit ethnic neighborhood, divided by invisible racial boundary lines of ignorance and fear. And while the scripts may differ slightly between the actual and imagined, this tale is truly the way it was. The neighborhood was all encompassing; the 2 ½-mile stretch of real estate that went from Arthur Avenue to Belmont was the only world we knew, we were insulated, protected from insurgents. No one from the outside world dared to venture in. Like the character Calogero, for me, it was truly a time of coming of age, and if you were smart enough or in my case had... (more)

In Case of Katrina

By Credo, published on Oct 8, 2007

...and with the additional damages suffered as a result of the insurance denials for millions of home and business owners makes for very pitiful circumstances. Someone is responsible for the massive loss of property and life, either the insurance companies who has promised business security and real estate protection to the insured or the government who built and certified the levees for the city of Louisiana. Somebody must be large enough to be truly committed to the people who have been a source of dedication towards these insurance companies and who have been committed to the American way... (more)

God Vs, Evolution

By Credo, published on Sep 21, 2007

...of itself couldn’t complete such an enormous undertaking as all organized creation on our planet in our universe and in the galactic kingdom. Who is to say that we are the only life form living among all these galaxies, and should we actually be alone in the galactic kingdom then we certainly have enough available prime real estate to chose from. Perhaps I could get a lot on Venus where all the beautiful women are.

Another Gay Sunshine... Fall Lineup?

By C. Reagan, published on Aug 23, 2007

...and “Blow Out” all star openly gay characters without flaunting their sexuality at the front and center of each and every episode. Also, a new reality program, “Flipping Out” stars an openly gay man struggling to break into the world of house flipping in Los Angeles. Real Estate is the new black, didn’t you know? It's up in the air as to which these shows will sink and which will swim. Of course, some of them will become water cooler chatter and some will be forgotten before you can blink an eye. Either way, its exciting to see more "out" characters on... (more)

Bonds Ineligible for Role Model Status

By D. E. Carson, published on Jul 16, 2007

...“Show me the money.” Has Major League Baseball bothered to stop and consider why attendance is down at major league parks? Perhaps it’s the thousands of dollars charged for luxury box seats where spectators aren’t really watching the game, just taking up prime real estate in the stadium that would be better served given to the real fans. Nah, that couldn’t be it. Oh wait, it has to be the millions of dollars paid to no-talent hacks like Bonds who resort to using drugs to make sure they stay in the game and produce home runs. That’s got to be... (more)

The Fate of Words Online

By Matt Weston, published on Apr 30, 2007

...by litblogs through reviews, links, and message boards is changing how authors are cultivated, and how books are marketed. While publishers have incentive to employ litbloggers as agents to create footholds for new releases, Kellogg cautioned against viewing all litblogs as publicity real estate. The possibility of “getting rich,” she said, “doesn’t motivate people to write about books on blogs.” Hogan’s career arc, beginning with Beatrice.com in 1995, one of the internet’s first literary sites, testifies to how a skilled hobbyist can... (more)

Telling Dead Men's Tales

By Lynn Downey, published on Apr 3, 2007

...books about the Great or Merely Mediocre men of history? I mean, we’ve finally managed to get women’s history onto library and bookstore shelves. Just check out the square footage of the history and biography sections at Borders or Cody’s or Copperfield’s. This real estate used to look like the pages of that classic reference book, The Dictionary of American Biography, also known as the “DAB.” Or, as the wags in my library master’s program at U.C. Berkeley used to call it, “Dead American Boys.” Women are finally publishing... (more)

Cingular Me Out

By Reza B, published on Mar 31, 2007

...tone and then pauses, “thirty... five... minutes.” I feel my heart beating in my ears as the mobile phone heats my brain to boiling, the sweat streaming down the crevice between my face and the call screen. I can feel the tumor welcoming life as it stakes a claim on that prime real estate that is the left-hemisphere of my brain. I spend the next 45-minutes listening to all the new features that Cingular has to offer, and how they will make me, my family, and my friends happy... again, and again. God is dead to me now, and I ponder the possibility that we are all, in fact,... (more)

Interview with Glenn Koenig, Photographer for the LA Times

By Ariel, published on Feb 11, 2007

...complete with a replica of the Mayflower and all the kids dressed up as pilgrims. Feature stories and projects are planned in advance, so the photographers get some notice before the assignment. This includes all sections of the paper such as Calendar, Food, Business, California and Real Estate. The editors at the Times love a good weather photo. Rain, wind, sunshine or the occasional snowfall is considered a weather event in Southern California. If there is a need for an A1 or B1 cover weather picture, all photogs are told to be on the look out during their workday.... (more)
