More News from da 'Burgh

Also in the news recently was some census information. Adding to the region's woes, is a continued general exodus from the rust belt to the sun belt. The region lost 58,000 residents from 1995-2000, or 220 people/week. Despite that, houses are still listing at well above their assessed value -- which may just be a quirk of the assessment process that I haven't figured out yet!
