    When my wife and I were house shopping lo those many years ago, we found a house in a college town that we absolutely loved–good location, reasonable price, a first-ballot kind of house. The problem was that there were at least three or four ramshackle student-apartment houses within easy stereo-blasting distance. For some reason, that memory always puts me in mind of the Hall of Fame ballot.
