Money Well Spent?

Realtor's FloatIt's good to know that the National Association of Realtors is doing so well that they could spend $1 million to enter a float in the Pasadena, California Rose Parade on New Year's Day. Considering the rate of foreclosures over the last two years, the float was rather ironically titled "Celebrating the Dream of Home Ownership for 100 Years." As if that wasn't enough, the presentation included an original NAR commissioned song composed by Charles "Killing Me Softly With His Song" Fox, written by Alan & Marilyn Bergman (Oscar for Yentl), and sung by Grammy-winning singer Steve Tyrell. Way to tighten your belts and buckle up NAR!

P.S. - There's no truth to the rumor that the NAR will be raffling off the float to one lucky foreclosure victim as their new home.
