The average sale price for a flat in NYC soared from $779,112 to $998,905 in one year. Here's an article from the Times on this topic, too.

From Elizabeth Kolbert's New Yorker article on political humor,
Dean followed up the “Letterman” appearance with an interview with Jon Stewart on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show.” When the segment aired, the day before the New Hampshire primary, it consisted mostly of voice-overs of the two men’s “thoughts.” At one point, Dean was asked his position on gay marriage. As he held forth, his answer was drowned out by Stewart’s interior monologue: “Mrs. Jon Dean . . . Mr. Howard Stewart . . . Howard and Jon Dean . . . Dr. and Mr. Jon Dean-Stewart.”

“We’re not Watusi, we’re not Spartans—we’re Americans! . . . That means that our forefathers were kicked out of every decent country in the world. We are the wretched refuse. We’re the underdog. We’re mutts. Here’s proof.” He touches a soldier’s face. “His nose is cold.” I've got to put that on my sidebar.
