Numbers Game

"Housing Starts" numbers are a count of how much construction began on single family homes. Southeast Michigan tallied 741 of these in the first three months of the year. We suppose it is nice to have figures that economists like, but we'd rather know about housing re-starts, given the area's large amount of vacant homes. Why start from scratch when we have so much for sale? For cheap! [Freep]
