The Boise Picayune said...

I grew up on East 31st Street @ The Junction and we had 2 Doormen, A Super' and a Porter.

It was just a regular working class building.

Now living in Boise, Idaho., I am constantly amused at the folks (mostly Californians)who shell out hundreds of thousands of dollars to purchase cheesy condos that won't even supply a Doorman.

"Virtual" Doormen?!?

No such thing. It's just snappy marketing for a security system.

P.S. Funny thing about living here?

It's the Potato Capitol of the known universe and you can't get a friggin' Knish!
