Looks like a circus of white elephants. Detroit is far far far worse…filled with white elephants.

A white elephant is a valuable possession of which its owner cannot dispose and whose cost (particularly cost of upkeep) is out of proportion to its usefulness.

I am so glad that I sold this spring and didn’t wait until next year. I don’t know what you’re seeing from the inside Nick, but from the outside it looks like the market in South Bend isn’t getting any better.
