Best Thing To Happen To Low-income Austinites Since The Last Bust

The Dot-Com Crash

Sure, we feel sorry for all those shamed dot-commers skulking back to California, U-Haul trailer in tow. But we sure are happy to see rents take a breather, after several straight years of through-the-roof increases.
