Maybe she got a better offer from Craigslist.

There is much speculation on sfgate about the Chronicle letting her go or eliminating her position. I don't think this is the case. Carol is now living in Costa Rica, which makes covering the nuances of SF real estate a bit too surreal, even for surreal estate.

Did Carol dispatch the column from her home in Costa Rica for the past 8 years, or did she just move there after saying goodbye to the San Francisco Chronicle?

Just another sign the housing bubble is deflating.

"Just another sign the housing bubble is deflating."

Surely it is either that or one woman making a career change.

Her articles tended to be poorly written fluff.

She never did write that book that she had been talking about for the past 8 years.

OMG - Did I just say that - how rude!!!
