Q1 - Moving: According to a recent report on American Public Media’s ‘Marketplace,’ in New York City, landlords and developers are paying big money (in some cases upwards of six figures and more) to convince renters to vacate their rent-controlled apartments. The practice, which makes way for property owners to then raise rents or build luxury condos, is now commonplace in many cities where rent-controlled housing still exists. Do you like your home or apartment? If so, what would it take to get you to agree to move? I love my house. I'd be hard pressed to move as I've moved so many times before. I'm ready to put down roots here. It would take an awful lot to get me to move, I don't know if money would be a motivator. Perhaps a lack of money, but not the prospect of a big profit from the sale.
Q2 - You Choose: Which is more important to you... Liberty or Security? Liberty- without freedom there can be no true security.
Q3 - Drinking: If you could drink anything right now--alcoholic or otherwise--what and how much of it would you drink? A french martini- it's Friday afternoon!
Q4 - Counting: How many light bulbs are in your home, and when was the last time you had to change one? My God, I have dozens! Too many to count. I have one out in my bathroom vanity now that I need to change now.
