minutes of fame.  
Use it.
2.  Have your act ready or reporters will make it up _for_ you. (Feed them what 
you want 
them to know.  As John Greene mentions, when it comes to facts they're 
basically lazy .)

- Fred's points were excellent.
- We need to hear more from such valiant efforts as Chicago's Harambee Project, 
and the other one
there,  was well as the Portland, Ore. affordability group.
  Also, we just got a 45K offer from the state to help cover the common house 
costs of our 
affordable units (5 on a tax credit program for 50% of area median income).  
The city chipped in
another 40K on site costs.
  Let's share info with each other.  I like this thread!  Who else is talking
