A comedian in Philadelphia made jokes about it at a comedy club and a video of it was uploaded to youtube. It went viral. Cosby had been back in the news because he had some TV projects in development. That's probably why the comedian made the remarks. [ Reply | More ]

For the high-tax area of NYC, you could swing it on 130k. A lot depends on whether you mean true take-home of 100k (i.e. 401k deductions and health care payments don't count) and whether you mean a single's income, not an extra 130k on top of a spouse's 400k. [ Reply | More ]

I bought dd a house in her college town, she had 2 roommates that covered mortgage, we put the rental income on her tax return, thus - she had enough income to be considered "in-state" and tuition was 70% less than out-of-state tuition with no cost for "room." Sold when she graduated but wish I had kept it. Values skyrocketed but you should consider that once you know where ds is going to school - if only to save on board. Yes, I do the 14 days of "free" rental of my own house as I live in a town that is very desirable for short term rentals at graduation time (local university.) [ Reply | More ]
