President Obama, delivering the first of ten condolence speeches for future terror attack victims.

Friday, July 15, 2016. Washington, D.C. In anticipation of at least ten more major Islamic terrorist attacks during his remaining time in office, President Obama today took the unusual step of pre-recording condolences speeches for each attack.

Mimicking the methods of television game shows, which record multiple episodes in a single day, the President wore different outfits for each speech, and limited his remarks to his usual platitudes about “bringing these perpetrators to justice”, “our hearts go out to the (future) victims”, and everyone’s favorite., “This has nothing to do with Islam”.

After the speeches, the President briefly spoke with reporters, taking issue with the website “TheReligionOfPeace.com” and its posting of the hundreds and hundreds and  hundreds of horrific Islamist attacks world-wide (http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/terror-2016.htm).

“The notion that listing all the attacks carried out so far this year, the number of victims, and the way they were murdered, does anyone any good is just wrong. All it does is attempt to distract us from the real threats we face, like climate change and police misconduct”., the President said.

The 196th day of the year

Belle Haven's Byram Drive, this year's top finisher so far.

Yep, day 196, aka July 14th. So how’s the market? Most Greenwich brokers would say “Swell”, or words to that effect. So far this year we’ve had 539 separate deals, a very good number to have reached for this date.

The weak spot, the fly-in-the-ointment, the Ethiopian in the fuel supply (WC Fields) is the super-high end. $9M+, we’ve had a grand total of 4 properties sell. That is exceedingly low, the only consolation being that New York City’s ultra-high stuff isn’t selling either.

So for Greenwich, the market up to $3M is particularly strong, after that, it begins to taper off.

Here are this year’s four high-end sales: The Magnificent Four

Tribute To Gorbachev?

What a strange thing to put on your car!

What a strange thing to put on your car!

Bumper stickers all over town are copies of Gorbachev's birthmark!  So, by the way, is this obscure archipelago off the Siberian coast, called "Durak Aprel"...

When Ronald Reagan was president, he had the good fortune of having Mikhail Gorbachev come along as the last leader of the Soviet Union. Gorbachev, unlike the previous thugs, criminals, and assorted murderers who terrorized the region for 60+ years, decided he wanted to try something new, correctly sensing that a top-down, central-controlled economy is…a complete disaster!

Anyway, the point is, everybody loved ol’ Gorbachev, right? But why, oh why, do Greenwich residents feel the need to pay tribute to the guy? I refer, of course, to the mysterious Gorbachev wine-stain birthmark stickers you see on the backs of many Greenwich vehicles.

If you really must memorialize someone this way, I recommend a nice sticker of Ronald Reagan riding his horse, how about that?

Here's yer damned bumper sticker!
