File under Signs of the Times: A columnist at the Dallas Morning News notes that the flow of get-rich-quick real estate books has slowed to a trickle. During the housing boom, business reporters got regular shipments of books about real estate. The publishers hoped we'd mention the books to readers, who would buy the books, and then the authors would get rich quick.

One of the most mocked books was by the then-chief economist of the National Association of Realtors, entitled "Are you Missing the Real Estate Boom?"

The columnist, Steve Brown, notes that many people now probably wish they had.

These days, he writes, the few books he does get have a "funerary air."
