News that the wealthy are being hit hard in the Real Estate values has me crying tears that would make even a crocidile say, “Oh b**ch, please!”

It seems those trying to unload real estate in the Hamptons, for instance lost 20 cents on the dollar, as smart (and equally wealthy) shoppers went looking for the kind of bargain homes that come with electric sinks, a Sock and Underwear Butler and Gold-plated lawns.

Don’t cry for me, Long Island…

And with the real estate market adjusted just a little closer to reality, these bargain shopping days should be available well into the new year. So, even the rich people had to settle for what ever they could get.

The “Money Magazine Best Places to Live 2010″ list is out and the winner is not… where I live. Oh poop. I thought this was a nice town and everything. Sigh…

Everyone on the internet is trumpeting the fact that their city or town made the Top 100 list, with places like Franklin, Tennessee; Columbia, Maryland; West Chester, Ohio; and Fischers, Indiana (among many, many others) giving themselves and their “hoods” the big shout outs. “Hey, we’re #(fill in number here) in the Money Magazine Best Places to Live… and you’re not! Ha! In your face!”

The full list of the “Money magazine Best Places to Live” will be out in the August issue of Money Magazine, and it uses to compare various factors like populations, average yearly income, taxes and other factors which then feed into the number-crunching maw of Onboard Informatics great machine, which chews them up and spits out a list of 100 small cities and towns that totally rock to live in., so long as their population numbers fall between a low of 8.500 and a cap of 50,000. So… sorry L.A., that puts you right out of the running for that, and no doubt a legion more, reasons. No “Money Magazine Best Places to Live” spot for you.
