I want my Rebchook

John Rebchook, the now former Real Estate Editor of the Rocky Mountain News is one of the greatest reporters I've ever known. He'd been covering real estate in Colorado since 1983, and I have the old clippings to prove it.

We discussed a lot of foreclosure data in recent years, and when your'e dealing with a reporter who reported on the high foreclosures of the mid-eighties, the discussion is a lot more learned than it might be otherwise.

I got used to reading Rebchook's real estate stories pretty much every day. Many of them were about things we were doing at the Division of Housing, but I probably always enjoyed the articles about new development the most.

Today is the third day in a row without a Rebchook story to read, and it's quite maddening to say the least.
