Featured Comments

Tomeoric left a comment on last week’s LPN:

“Premium housing”… you keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. Anyone else besides me that thinks they look like mausoleums (both inside and out)? Or the inside of a bank vault? While I have the MC to purchase one, I’m going to save it for when I can buy something that looks and feels like a house – or when Bingo Boffin’s house comes on the market…
