According to the Contra Costa Times, the complex will house senior citizens and local workers and will include "a community center and pool, terraced gardens, an orchard and 'micro farm' and a barn." To be allowed to live there, workers will need to make less than 80% of Marin County's median income; seniors will sit somewhere between 30% to 60%. (Median income for the area is $90,839, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.)

80% of 90k is not dirt poor even in Marin County. I'm sure he'll charge more than $500/month there.

They're pretty durable too. The kids throw them around, step on them, spill beverages and sometimes throw up on them.

Sometimes? Wait, how many times have your kids thrown up on them?

Maybe you should have them put aside the tablet for a sec and get them a bucket.

When some people discover the truth, they just can't understand why everybody isn't eager to hear it.
