Well, think of the economics of large buildings and of insurance companies. Large buildings pay off in time, a long time, but are a relatively certain bets. Life insurance companies NEED this sort of long-term, guaranteed income: the policy you buy today, and pay for today, won't be paid out for long, long years, Leica users in general, and LUG'ers in particular, being damned to long life. So, of course insurance companies own, and finance, a lot of LARGE buildings. Marc firstname.lastname@example.org FAX: +540/343-7315 Cha robh bas fir gun ghras fir!
