2 quick glimpses

We've been told that Seattle is a bright spot in national real estate, immune to the credit meltdown. 2 short stories in the last couple of weeks tells me it ain't so.

1. Talked with a local bank about grandma's inheritance. I let slip by saying, "I just didn't want to do something stupid with my money."

"Like buy real estate?" the banker said.

2. Part of my job at the non-profit I work at means I handle corporate matches. One of the accounts was a mortgage lender, and they wanted to alter this year's corporate match. They let slip that they are stopping their 401Ks for a few months, and they wanted to halt their corporate match for those same few months.
