A Gathering of Finches by Jane Kirkpatrick

"Finish the story." We sat in her room surrounded by Beatrix Potter's books with exquisite colored drawings of gardens and rabbits.
"I'm sorry. Don't know where my mind went," I said, not knowing it would be the first of many lies to myself, to her, and then to others.

Let's see, I tag Jackie, Selena, and hmm, I think that's everybody who stops by from time to time. If any one else out there wants to play, I tag YOU!!

Ok Paula here is your book: Urban Economics by Arthur O'Sullivan (professor at Lewis and Clark College: Portland, OR). This book happend to be sitting on my desk cuz it is for next quarter's Urban Economics class. Here we go on a journey:

When the price of indigo dropped, the farmers who had purchased land demanded their money back. Gandhi negotated a partial refund of the payment. Imagin that you are Gandhi's research assistant and must compute the approprate refund for the typical new landowner.

Did that bore you?? :-p

I'm asleep now...zzz....Just kidding. Actually, If that book was sitting on my desk, I'd probably grab a pencil and try to figure it out. I am kind of a nerd, you know! Thanks for playing, little bro! How's New York??
