On not being a slumlord: We own a house in South Carolina that we are renting out (but trying to sell). It reached a point where I felt it needed a full inspection to ensure safety. Turned out there were some serious issues which we have taking care of at considerable expense. Not that we deserve a medal for this–every landlord should do this–but just reminder that we must not take advantage of the less fortunate at the individual level. It’s not enough to call for political justice in America.
