My Home Town

A skosh of national attention today, as the New York Times notes that "Hampshire County, Mass., home to Northampton, had the highest proportion of female couples [of any county in the nation], at 1.7 percent." The other national media mention of Northampton I noticed this week was as the home of Kevin Barrett's publisher for his next book of essays, including the essay in which he likens 9/11 to the Reichstag fire. This led to his recent statement that to compare that dummy George Bush to Reichschancellor Hitler is unfair to Hitler.

Ouch.

Are you getting worried about property values?

Actually, this is good for his property values. Homosexuals are generally more affluent than the average for heterosexuals, and if the area becomes a 'Mecca' for lesbian couples, then you might see the average income, as well as the home values, climb.

It's time to sell.
