The Limits of Trulia

Much as you shouldn’t be surprised of the result if you decide to wear a meat suit into the shark tank at Sea World, you also shouldn’t be surprised at the responses that come in when you ask a question on an open forum like Trulia Voices. For every agent out there who honestly wants to help and provide some guidance, there are a dozen others whose every answer drips with the scent of “for the love of God, hire me as your agent … please, please, please, please.” That link above is a perfect example.

Naturally, there were exceptions; my mother and I still talk about the St. David marching band, all dozen and change of them, standing under a tree after their performance at the state marching band championships back in 1983. (And I still remember standing at the top of the stands at Mesa Community College, holding the hand of a Marcos de Niza clarinet player named Becky who I had met when we went to […]
