BUZ LIVINGSTON: Be careful what you wish for

Solving the fiscal cliff dilemma is as difficult as beating Alabama; neither is impossible though. 



Leonard Hortick, who runs Lion Properties LLC in Colorado, responded to last week’s column assuring me his firm’s (and his capital) is at risk. He attached a column pointing out how real estate is different from hedge funds and his fund qualifies for favorable capital gains tax rates.  Decades ago, an Auburn grad/banker told me as we watched two bird dogs hunt quail (not pen-raised birds), nothing is more dangerous than raw land, a prescient observation.
