No clever jokes here. Just some good, old-fashioned gloating.

Market Update
With market indices at all-time highs despite a profound international crisis, some analysts feel many stocks are arbitrarily overvalued. Oh well, it beats being arbitrarily undervalued.

Fire Fest

Burn Out
Of course, fire isn't the only way to clear-cut a neighborhood. You could always let a culture of corruption erode even the most fundamental city services, leaving no alternative but a radical reorganization. Shuttering schools is a great way to start.
