But a modern resettling of a big city like New Orleans has never been done.

It doesn't matter. At some point in the next several years, it will have to be done. And it won't just be New Orleans.

Yup, we could use the practice.

Re: House hunting

Oh, yeah -- and on topic, this is a horror that was permitted around the corner from 719 Jenifer St. RPG basically stripped the cute little house that was there down to the studs and appended a gigantic boxy tumorous growth that filled most of the rest of the lot and painted the whole mess some his...

Who was the last Wisconsin governor from Madison?

Re: Time for Age limits for all politicians

I have an idea to replace Social Security with a one-way ice floe-based transport system.

It'll save billions, but the trade-off is fewer Christmas presents.

Textured like Astroturf or just the color thereof?

Re: House hunting

Bingo! That kitchen looks like it belongs in a Mifflin St. flat, not an otherwise beautiful, almost $700k house on Van Hise. I personally got a kick out of the el cheapo $269.99 "Hotpoint" dishwasher. You probably could not find a cheaper dishwasher if you tried. Installed in a $700k hous...

Re: House hunting

5601 Russett Rd. So promising from the outside with one of the more unique garage doors I've seen, an interesting roofline, horizontal windows and a bold reddish orange paint job. But step inside and it's.......whitewashed! Don't be fooled by the first few interior shots on the zillow link, they're...

Re: Street names

I've always been fond of the maybe 1/2 block long "Little Street" in front of the old UW Field House that connects Monroe and Regent. For years, I thought it was named for its length, but no: named after UW football coach George Little, who racked up an 11-3-2 record in his two years as c...
