I gave the NYT props [1] the other day for an epecially good issue; I almost never do that for the WSJ (because its a given).

But I did mean to get up a post on the Journal’s Real Estate triple play this past Wednesday, along with their usual terrific graphics:

Are you telling me you still do not have a online WSJ subscription? Its not like I get paid for this endorsement, its simply must read Financial Journalism at a reasonable price.
