“This 5 bedroom, 6.5 bath residence offers a sophisticated lifestyle befitting the most discriminating buyer.”

Just perfect for the Sophisticated Investor. I personally like the bedroom/bathroom ratio. Not counting the pools, of course.

““I have an abiding fear that Felix is right” on online advertising — Kevin Drum”

I am always amazed that there is any arguement for consumer privacy – I always wonder what I am buying at the supermarket that I want to keep hidden. Frozen food? Cheetos? Abnormal amounts of brocoli?

People give up such privacy for a pittance because it is not worth a pittance to them. At one time people feared being photographed. Now, you can go to numerous websites and see more of people than perhaps you should want to.
