"I plan to move into Karl Fischer's Ikon...where the bottom floor of the ant farm will be my bowling alley and driving range. I also plan to move into his NV building...There's something about its 'plastic castle' look that appeals to me; not only does it afford an easily defensible, crenelated roof line, but it's close to the East River...How will I pay for food? That's easy -- pretty soon employers in China, Russia and India will be outsourcing their jobs, and that $3 an hour will make me a king compared to envious neighbors outside my NV castle. All I have to do is figure out how to stay alive till those jobs show up." Hope springs eternal. [Restless; Hot Karl Coverage]
