Finally rid myself of the condo. Ended up making out okay all things considered but it was a bit of a brutal process with months of little to no activity. Fortunately one person really liked it, and, as with many other things, all it takes is one.

I guess the good news is that I still feel confident that if I wait a bit to invest, the stock market will outperform the real estate market my condo was in. Won’t make up for the drop in value I had to accept due to COVID, but felt like this was the right choice. The purchase market appears to be rebounding now but the rental market is still dismal.
Final update: Looks like I may have been wrong about the market recovering. A unit identical to the one I sold (albeit one floor higher) listed right after my sale closed for a few grand higher than my sale price. Within weeks they lowered the price twice and sold for more than 10% less than mine. They were likely a motivated/impatient seller, but this really makes it tough on other sellers looking for fair value. Mine barely appraised so I'm fortunate in so many ways to have been able to sell when I did. Better to be lucky than good as they say.

I find it hard to see these two things as unrelated.

His kids are mixed race. He's white. But of course the core idiocy is he would bring "diversity" to the group as he'd be both the only man and (obviously) the only gay man.

Thanks for clarifying no idea how I missed that point. Either way that's crazy. Copies of those school board minutes would be amusing to browse (for 10-15 minutes).

Isn't this a little vague? Hard to meet this standard without knowing what qualifies as "proper ventilation".
It's almost as if you're more intent on trolling than actually engaging in discussion. Let me google it for you:

Thanks for the link. Why do you consider my question trolling? I asked a simple question to what I thought was a vague bullet point. Granted, I don't have kids in school so don't have a dog in the fight but I do read a lot of disputes between school boards (and governments) and teachers unions over what's considered appropriate conditions for reopening. Some of what I have read have blamed the governments others on unions, so I asked for more detail so I could at least work toward an informed opinion.

If I was mistaken about the intent of your question, please accept my apology. Teachers (and especially their unions) are subject to unending disrespect and disingenuous criticism, and it's not always easy to tell the difference.
