Update on the Foundry; civil unrest prediction updates

I got an email tonight from Standard Pacific that says they sold over 20 homes in the first four days of showing (out of 87 homes). That is a slightly brisker pace than I was expecting, but by no means was I expecting these units to go unwanted. There are still lots of falling Ginzu knife shoppers out there.

best value, offering more quality and style for the price than anything else in the 

Homebuyers across the South Bay and beyond must agree as over The Foundry Courtyard

Civil unrest updates:

Mike Morgan blogged today about"unbelievable spikes in crime" to hit when the weather warms up. Take note.

Jim Rogers has (probably) been watching the videos and slideshows of anti-porkulus protests, and he also has been weighing in on the possibility of riots.

None of this means, of course, that there will be a riot hitting the beach cities or South Bay next week. That is highly unlikely. If you haven't read it, see my post from earlier this month.

When you have 30 minutes of free time, kick back and watch this Twilight Zone episode "The Shelter" for a sample "worst case" civil unrest scenario:
