Quote du Jour. Possibly of Year.

Standard

Yeah, we are robbing Peter to pay Paul, he said. But that’s OK because Paul is dead.

The above bon motes are from Elliot Eisenberg, an economist with the National Association of Home Builders. Eisenberg then went on to say, according to the AJC, ‘Atlanta should continue to build even though demand isn’t there.’
