Shingles Cost

Roofing shingles cost exactly double what they did a little more than a year ago.
They are just little slabs of petroleum emulsions with aquarium pebbles stuck on them, and since our government thinks we don't need any of that sort of gooey black stuff any more except to put into bulletproof limousines and corporate jets, we'll have to economize elsewhere. Before you go all Tea Party on the government on my behalf, I suppose I should admit that we probably would have wasted the money anyway, on food for our children or something equally dumb. -- Sippican Cottage: Roofing; My Ass

I like the idea of metal roofs.

"Fat Man On A Metal Roof" not a bad title for ...something or other.
