Buy it now, or wait until the costs and benefits are clear? Most people would wait - good deal now will be a good deal next year. MY VIEW: "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence" (Carl Sagan) Evidence does not demonstrate the counterintuitive propositions that earthquake hazard in the NMSZ is comparable to that in coastal California and that buildings should be built to similar (expensive) standards. RECOMMENDATION: Don't adopt IBC 2003 unless unbiased and through cost/benefit study shows that it makes sense
