Recommended Posts

Here's a nice story in this week's Seattle Times about how people are getting through tough economic times by finding roommates to share the rent. Note the Fiestaware reference at the beginning of the story:

Writer with four turtles in tub, cats in basement, six dogs and 50-some fish seeks human roommate without pets.

Woman with three jobs, chest pains and unemployed husband seeks roommate.
