Bruce Dickinson

Listen, guys, just when things couldn't get any more kooky, now we have this nugget. Remember that TV show "Dragnet" and its famous tagline? "The story you are about to hear is true, only the names have been changed to protect the innocent". Well fellas, in this case it would be "Only the names have been changed to protect the GUILTY". Why does your buddy Bruce say this? Because Burlingame is guilty for becoming new precinct for flipping real estate. With the planning commission ever so willing to approve almost anything via fast track rubber stamp approvals, with all the developers sitting on the planning commission "lineup", now we have HGTV finding great material epitomizing the buy, tear down, develop, and flip mentality. And in a twist of fate, we have none other than developer-friendly Mike Brownrigg's name highlighted in the program, talk about a "bust"!! Can see the A.P.B. "Attention all Burlingame residents, be on the lookout for greedy developers, possibly carrying hammers, nails, and a building permit. Consider them armed and dangerous to your neighborhood." Gives new meaning to putting someone in a brand new spec "Big House". Seriously Joe, you cannot make this up, it's so good...you gotta love it!

I know, I know, that's why I paused the DVR to take photos as the show progressed. I could not make this up!
