Drag queens & the culture of ownership

This afternoon I got sucked into watching "Double Agents" on the Discovery Channel. It featured a drag-queen video store owner who was looking for a home in D.C. (He/she ended up with a fabulous place... I was totally envious).

Anyway, they have little trivia facts before commercials. One of them said "The average age of homeowners has fallen from 39 to 36 in the last four years." I'm no economist, but I think this is a good thing for the President. I interpret it to mean that people are making more money in more stable jobs at a younger age. I'm sure the drag queen was thrilled that there was a mini-Bush-commercial tacked on to his foray into the reality TV spotlight.
