Not Exactly a Vacation-Break

NotMakingThisUp will not be published this week and possibly next, owing to the fact that we are meeting a deadline for a book.

Based in good part on the series published in these virtual pages last year, Pilgrimage to Warren Buffett’s Omaha is set to be published by McGraw-Hill on October 4th.

That’s the good news.

The bad news is that anyone familiar with book deadlines would understand that the proximity of that date is less suitable for good writing than it is for, oh, drug overdosing and other misery-ending procedures.

In any event, we leave readers with the following quiz: what U.S. metropolitan center at the heart of the subprime mortgage collapse showed a 14% increase in the number of home sales, and a 37% increase in the number of pending home sales?
