Candorville: 9/14/2007- Three’s Company

Bad timing can be a very funny thing.This week, Candorville debuted in the Raleigh News & Observer on a trial basis. They’ll be testing it out for four weeks. The Raleigh News & Observer is one of the largest papers in the South (Mason-Dixon line and geography notwithstanding, it is the South – you’re not fooling anyone, “North” Carolina).Naturally, the week with which we introduce their solidly-conservative readers to Candorville happens to be a week that discusses civil rights by lampooning a closeted Republican Senator who trolls for gay sex in public restrooms. The readership is predictably amused.A question for our readers from the South: Is “Candorville is a hog farm lagoon” some sort of affectionate Southern colloquialism?Check out all the other praise, and add your own (ONLY if you live in North Carolina and read the News & Observer) in their online forum. And again ONLY if you’re a local News & Observer reader (no cheating, please), the News & Observer wants to hear from you. Write to them and tell them whether you want Candorville at

    Let’s play house. I’ll get a subprime loan for a house we can’t afford [at half the rent we pay now!]
    That’s how it worked. People found out they could get a house loan and live decently for the same rent their slumlord was charging. So they did. Wouldn’t you? When the escalator clause kicked in three years later, they just moved on to another place. Worked for over a decade for some people. Equity? No, but the mortgage and taxes and insurance were all less or equal to the gouging rents, especially in the San Francisco, LA, and San Diego areas. I imagine booming areas in the rest of the country did similarly. New Orleans? Unspeakable. Who was scamming whom? Linus
