Subleases sometimes include the right of subtenants to use the existing fixtures, furniture and equipment in the subleased space.

Leasing Illustrated receives more reader input for any G.O.T. themed edition than all our other issues combined. It must be that all that deceit, gore and back stabbing (and, of course, dragons) makes commercial leasing participants feel right at home.

I read recently that some dairy farmers, in an effort to keep their dairy cows stress free and at peak milk production, offer their cows climate controlled barns, soothing classical music, water beds or memory foam mattresses, nutritionist crafted meals and back scratching sessions.

Twitter is a world I do not fully understand. Okay, it is a world about which I have no clue. But I did recently come upon the "Basketbard", a twitterer (twitterer?) covering NBA basketball in the language of Shakespeare.

As you no doubt know by now, the Oscars ceremony managed to go off script when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were handed the wrong envelope by Price Waterhouse (apparently distracted by their backstage tweets) and incorrectly anointed "La La Land" as best picture when the actual winner was "Moonlight".
