Caesonia commented on Car talk with Deborah Gordon at the Miller Center
I find it interesting that in this location, the house is close to 'assessed value.' I don't think that is consistently true across Belmont. I also see some hefty price tags on some other houses in Belmont, that are smaller, and I would be curious to see what one is closing at right now. I think...

"Though not quite close enough to trendy restaurants, this house is nevertheless considered part of Belmont." I would much rather live there than closer to where they are trying against neighborhood objections to shove in yet another noisy restaurant called Southern Crescent.
Roadkill commented on Car talk with Deborah Gordon at the Miller Center
Ms Jacobson brings up an excellent point about sidewalks: "And that raises the question, why are there still neighborhoods in the city without sidewalks in 2009?" If you want to know why, just ask Jim Tolbert. And if you want 20 different answers to that question, just ask him 20 different times....
I'm Just Saying commented on Car talk with Deborah Gordon at the Miller Center
The owners paid $100K less when they bought this in 2004. Have they really done $100K in improvements for new buyer, or was it for their own private enjoyment? With 10% down, this is $1900 a month. A 30 yr mortgage will make this place cost $650K. "Starter home"? That's an outdated term in this...
Cville Eye commented on Car talk with Deborah Gordon at the Miller Center
"With three bedrooms and two full baths, it's enough space for someone trying to move from an apartment, and at a low enough price for some first-timers, a new couple or small family, just starting out." Starting out? Where are they going? "With three bedrooms and two full baths, it's enough...
all aboard commented on Copy, paste: Jaquith catches best-selling plagiarist
The content of the book is gathering of facts and putting them together as a new idea or examining them in a different way. That is where the talent in this book shows. The fact that he did not credit wikipedia (who after all is "wickipedia" anyway....?)is slightly noteworthy but hardly worth the...
Root Beer Float commented on Copy, paste: Jaquith catches best-selling plagiarist
What--stubborn? Kidding of course. But I must caution against the seductive pleasure of kudos. A spur to achievement, sure. But also a vulnerabililty. Might there be injured vanity in response to one posting here? Honor pricks you on? Consider Falstaff on the subject. http://www.youtube....
Waldo Jaquith commented on Copy, paste: Jaquith catches best-selling plagiarist
Hey, is that the same Raman Pfaff who bitterly despises everything about Charlottesville (and elsewhere)? After all, it's possible that we're both confusing each other with somebody else, what with our respective names being so common. (How awkward would that be?) Lucy, thank you for your kind...
Root Beer Float commented on Copy, paste: Jaquith catches best-selling plagiarist
Waldo did get accepted at Kenyon, which has admission criteria standards that might make U. Va. look like the charm school Jodie Foster claimed it isn't, in Silence of the Lambs. But Waldo didn't go, instead hiking part of the Appalachian Trail (until his feet gave out). Then after President...
