    The City

    The cartoon THE CITY Dan clipped is one of many from a cartoonist called Derf. He's not literally planning oriented but he has many frightening insights on urban and suburban life and a certain serial killer from his home town.

    Derf???? That is so funny would you believe my sister's husband is named Derf, and he is from Ohio too!! He is a Golf Course Mgr in Breckenridge CO now. But I don't think he's moonlighting as a 'toonist. His given name is Fred but everyone calls him Derf-

    Close enough for planners

    Excerpted from tne latest Onion http://www.theonion.com/

    WASHINGTON, DC—In the first quarter of 2002, sales of new U.S. homes rose 5.3 percent among Dockers-wearing, Pictionary-playing lame-o's, the Commerce Department reported Monday.

    "The Federal Reserve Board may have stimulated home-buying with its interest-rate cuts," Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan said. "But that doesn't mean any of us would ever want to live in a split-level ranch in some soulless gated community near Phoenix, where we'll obsess over golf and property values. Promise you'll shoot me if it ever comes to that."

    "Lame-o's across the country are making appointments at financial institutions to ask men in ugly neckties and women with hairstyles 10 years out of style to adjust their mortgages to a slightly more favorable rate," Akkaf said. "When that's done, they return to their homes, where they stare at their $12.99 Monet prints from Target and listen to Andrea Bocelli on their mini-stereos. What kind of life is that?"

    "Purchasing a home is not the act of a pessimist," said Frank Nothaft, chief economist at Freddie Mac. "But it is the act of a dweeb. Sure, renting costs more over time than owning, but do you want to spend your weekends cleaning out leaf gutters and fixing the garage-door opener, or do you want to be happy? Life is way too short, people. Loosen up."
