    Maybe some of those 3rd & 4th empty bedrooms in the McMansions might actually see some use!

    It's just like past times when boarders weren't uncommon in those homes with excess rooms, or the garage was fitted out and rented out to a "friend" for a bit of cash on the side. Nothing new here, really.
    I think the media must have been stuck for a story on this one :D
