I agree that we, as a society, should be doing this. Maybe I should start a crazy summer camp for Jr. Mad Scientists: Where you only really fail if the project DOESN'T go horribly wrong. Think summer camp meets FlugTag.
Just signed a new lease for a townhouse in Squirrel Hill. The office staff has been very polite and largely efficient. Got the lease sorted out before I got to town and everything went very smoothly. The townhouse is very nice, clean, and the all-in-all very nice.
