This just in from a reader:
"My mother in law lives in the Villages, and by and large I think you really
nailed the place.
I was just down there and many of the nascent issues you identified (water
use, rampant expansion) are apparently coming to a head. Also, there's a
slowdown in new-home construction (an expansion out to Wildwood is on hold,
though the Morses won't talk), and the ones that are being constructed are
now open to customization."
Looks like The Villages bubble is slowly deflating...
