My dad is selling a new house up on the Blue Ridge Parkway in NC (right next to Stone Mountain State Park): http://www.blairandward.com/default.asp?content=expanded&search_content=new_created_listings&this_format=0&mls_number=59872&page=1&sortby=2  It's a great investment because it is closer to metro areas and less expensive than overpriced Boone, Banner Elk and Grandfather Mountain areas. 
BEAUTIFUL CUSTOM BUILT NEW CONSTRUCTION OVERLOOKING THE 18TH GREEN AT GREENSTREET MTN/STONE MTN GOLF CLUB! Open floorplan & high ceilings give this home a very spacious feel. Located within walking distance of clubhouse. Beautiful windows provide lots of natural light & views from almost every room. Beautiful floors, lots of cabinet space, & huge loft that could be used as entertainment space, an office, game room, or even extra sleeping space. ...

Please check out my published piece in Earth Island Journal, which appears next to writing from thought leaders like Michael Pollan and others. I hope I've given you a good excuse to subscribe to a very valuable and informative publication:

What would John Adams say about the "enemy combatant" idea after the Boston Marathon Bombings?  Perhaps his response to the Boston Massacre is revealing: http://open.salon.com/blog/bjorn_philip_beer/2013/04/22/john_adams_on_the_boston_bombings_and_the_boston_massacre

I was saddened (then angered) by the debate this week where both candidates tried to "one up" the other on who would do a better job at maintaining our military-industrial-complex, missing the biggest security issue of our day: http://open.salon.com/blog/bjorn_philip_beer/2012/10/24/i_wont_vote_for_a_climate_change_ostrich

This weekend wrote short piece for Earth Island Journal about Condi Rice's absurd claim that pipelines in the US are linked to crisis in Ukraine: http://www.earthisland.org/journal/index.php/elist/eListRead/a_pipeline_to_the_past/

On July 4th, it's worth looking at the Anti-sharia/anti-abortion legislation in North Carolina that is fundamentally un-American: http://open.salon.com/blog/bjorn_philip_beer/2013/07/04/american_taliban_strikes_again_in_north_carolina

As a former pollster, I cringe when I hear anyone talk about poll numbers. Check out this (short) letter advising openness towards uncertainty: http://open.salon.com/blog/bjorn_philip_beer/2012/10/26/cautionary_letter_to_armchair_pundits_from_a_former_pollster

Just simmering below the surface of the endless commentary on this election is great deal of irony that an Obama loss to Romney would reveal. Becoming aware of this irony could help his supporters move forward if he loses (and especially if he wins): http://open.salon.com/blog/bjorn_philip_beer/2012/10/09/the_irony_of_hope
