Does this mean at the next meet-up you will be showing up w/one of those giant pointing fingers?

But where is the analysis of inflation-adjusted return on those Big Hermosa Tract lots between La Jolla and PB that were as high as $7500 per lot ?

A commentary on Pacific Beach that leads to discussion of a crack pipe. Coincidence? I think not.

It also has the “mass transit coming soon!” selling point.

Everyday I drive by the light rail sign next to my Chula – Eastlake condo (91913). I still have to drive to work. Good to know that it has worked on suckers like me for 85 years.

“Mass transit coming soon”?
“Mass transit coming soon”? I missed that. Well, that’s great news. Any idea when? I’ll just sell my car today.

Oh, wait a minute. Are they talking about that bus that runs down Garnet and Mission once a day?

Ah, yes. The ever wishful effective mass transit that Europeans enjoy that is elusive here in the country of GM, Chrysler and Ford, sponsored by our ever-giving taxpayers.

Selling dreams since 1924.

OK, you sneaked up on me with the Redfin graph. Funny stuff!

I like the pointing fingers of the 19th century. Who can resist a finely engraved finger?

I feel compelled to look where this distinguished finger points. No cheapo 20th century newsprint finger could command the same obedience.

Computer generated 21st century finger-pointing doesn’t do it for me, either:

I would look away from what this finger points at.


I actually learned a new word while looking for these: “manicule”:

Rich and all Piggingtonians,
Rich and all Piggingtonians,

I had to share my memory of Laugh-In’s Fickle Finger of Fate.

“The Flying Fickle Finger of Fate Award, saluting actual dubious achievements by the government or famous people. The trophy was a gilt, outstretched finger atop a square base. “The flying, fickle finger of fate” was already a familiar catchphrase on the show (Dan Rowan would use the phrase when ushering “new talent” like Tiny Tim on stage).'s_Laugh-In

Happy Pointing!
